Mild buckling seen at the radial distal metaphysis with mild angulation. No distinct fracture line seen.
Torus fracture (also known as buckle fracture) is an incomplete fracture, most commonly occurring in the pediatric age group. This is due to a compressive force acting along the long axis of bone. It most commonly occurs in the distal radial metaphysis following a fall on an outstretched hand.
