X – Ray Left Shoulder Jt Axial View

Overview Brief

An X-Ray Left Shoulder Jt (Joint) Axial View is performed to check for swelling, fractures or broken bones in the shoulder.

What is X – Ray Left Shoulder Jt Axial View?

The X – Ray Left Shoulder Jt Axial View is very helpful in detecting if there are any anterior or posterior dislocations in the shoulder area. When the X-ray is performed, the patient is in a supine position. A disruption in the shoulder can cause it to stop functioning well. In such case, getting a Left Shoulder Joint Axial View X – Ray is crucial.

How is X – Ray Left Shoulder Jt Axial View performed?

An X – Ray Left Shoulder Jt Axial View test is done in the following way:

  • Sandbags and pillows are used to maintain a proper position.
  • A lead apron is placed over to protect the pelvic and breast area.
  • To avoid blurry images, patients may have to hold still and hold their breath for a few seconds.

After the test is completed, the patient may have to wait until the technologist confirms all the images are proper.
