Anatomic Variation in Volar Tilt of the Scaphoid and Lunate Facet of the Distal Radius

Anatomic Variation in Volar Tilt of the Scaphoid and Lunate Facet of the Distal Radius

The aim of distal radial fracture treatment is to achieve optimal function through the restoration of normal anatomy, including volar tilt. The accuracy of assessing volar tilt on standard lateral radiographs compared with anatomic tilt lateral (ATL) radiographs is uncertain.
