    Frontal radiograph of the wrist demonstrates widening and irregularity of the distal radial physis with underlying metaphyseal sclerosis.

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Imaging Technique: Plain radiographic studies; Procedure: Computer Applications-Detection, diagnosis; Special Focus: Athletic injuries;

    Widening and irregularity of the distal radial physis with underlying metaphyseal sclerosis; finding better seen on this oblique projection.
