Abstract

The authors have routinely utilized a lateral roentgenogram of the acromion to evaluate the acromioclavicular joint. This has significantly aided us in the diagnosis and treatment of acromioclavicular joint injuries, especially when there was posterior dislocation of the distal clavicle. This presentation reviews standard roentgenography of the acromioclavicular joint and illustrates the method of obtaining the lateral projection as described by O.M. Alexander. We will also show how this method has helped us clinically in detecting posterior dislocations of the distal end of the clavicle.
