There is an oblique intraarticular fracture of the radial styloid, a triquetral fracture is evident on the dorsal aspect of the lateral projection. The scapholunate interval is wide suggestive of a scapholunate ligamentous injury.
It is advantageous to 'park' the obvious abnormality and continue searching for any further injuries; triquetral fractures are sometimes only evident on the dorsal aspect of the lateral projection and can be overlooked with ease.
