2 case question available
The fracture was not noted at the time of imaging and a turned lateral was done. The doctor did not note the fracture but waited on the report. The report mentioned a lucency on the turned lateral and suggested a CT to clarify/rule out fracture. The CT was booked for another 2 days. The fracture was noted and patient recalled and sent to hospital 4 days after the initial presentation and 2 days before CT booked. Presumably had cannulated screws.
