For an oblique of the 5th finger, the finger should be rotated _____ from the prone position. Laterally
Where should the CR be located for a PA oblique hand projection? Perpendicular to the 3rd MCP joint
Rotation of the forearm so the palm faces down is called: Pronation
Where should the proper placement of the CR be for an AP projection of the hand? 3rd metacarpophalangeal joint
You do not meed to include the wrist bones on a PA hand projection False
The carpal located on the most lateral side, distal end of the wrist is the ____. Trapezium (Greater multangular)
What bone is the focus of the PA ulnar deviation projection of the wrist? Scaphoid (navicular)
The hand should be made into a loose fist for what projection? PA wrist

Which of the following positions would best demonstate the navicular in a radiographic examination of the wrist? PA Ulna flexion
What is the proper position for an AP forearm projection. Hand supinated
In performining a routine examination of the forearm, which of the following must be done to insure a desirable AP (anteroposterior) projection? Hand must be supinated
