Plain radiographs are the initial investigation of choice for suspected fractures and dislocations. A variety of radiographic views of the shoulder may be obtained. The anatomy shown on each of these will be described. The radiological signs of pathology may be subtle so it is important to be familiar with the specific findings associated with certain injuries. (SCJ) joints. The highly mobile GHJ is formed by the articular surfaces of the humeral head and the glenoid fossa. The glenoid cavity is deepened by a fibrocartilaginous ring – the glenoid labrum.

The anterior fat pad is radiographically visible in almost all normal elbows. The posterior fat pad lies deep in the olecranon fossa and is never visible in the flexed position unless a large effusion or haemarthrosis displaces it out of the fossa.

11). If there is uncertainty, a weight-bearing AP view may be obtained to exaggerate any displacement resulting from injury. Also, when comparing with the contralateral side, there should be no more than 5 mm difference in the coracoclavicular distance. Luxatio erecta Luxatio erecta is a very rare inferior dislocation, which classically results from a fall down an open manhole cover. 10). Sternoclavicular joint injury Dislocation of the SCJ may be difficult to assess radiographically due to overlapping structures.
