Overview Brief

X-ray clavicle is an imaging procedure of the body. The X-ray is used to detect injuries and fractures in the clavicle region.

What is X-Ray Clavicle Left Side?

The X-ray of the clavicle is a standard imaging procedure used to detect injuries in the clavicle region.

The left clavicle is the bone that lies between the breastbone and the left shoulder blade. The X-ray projection of the clavicle includes an AP shoulder projection and an AP clavicle projection with cephalic angulation1. The X-ray demonstrates the shoulder in its natural anatomical position with a focus on the left side allowing for adequate radiographic examination2. The X-ray imaging is based on the principle that different parts of the body absorb the electromagnetic waves differently and hence help us detect abnormalities.
