Overview Brief

Rt Femur AP View X-Ray is used to assess the thigh bone in case of pain, injury or deformities.

What is Rt Femur AP View X-Ray?

An X-Ray projection of the upper leg (thigh bone) is generated to assess the bone in case of an injury or any medical emergency.

Rt Femur AP View X-Ray is often performed as a second test after a knee or a hip X-Ray has demonstrated signs of an injury or fracture [1].

How is Rt Femur AP View X-Ray performed?

The Rt Femur AP View X-Ray is performed by placing the leg under an X-Ray machine. [2]

The patient is positioned as follows:

  • The patient lies down on the table.
  • Patient’s thigh bone (femur) is placed parallel to the middle of the table.
  • Patient’s leg is rotated at an angle of approximately 5 degrees.
  • It is ensured that the knee joint is also under the purview of the detector.

The entire procedure takes about 10-15 minutes post which the technician examines the X-Ray projections to give a conclusive diagnosis.

Side effects/risks of Rt Femur AP View X-Ray 

Rt Femur AP View X-Ray has minimal risk of causing cancer and other radiation-related side effects. Children may be more susceptible to the effects of radiation.

Preparation before performing Rt Femur AP View X-Ray

No extensive preparation is required before getting Rt Femur AP View X-Ray.

However, some important points to keep in mind are [3]:

  • Remove any clothing around the leg to prevent it from obstructing the X-Ray image.
  • Remove all jewelry and metal objects so that they do not appear on the X-Ray.
  • Inform the technician of any metal implants so that it can be taken into consideration while viewing the X-Ray. 

It is advisable to reach the test centre in advance to prepare better.

Post-care after Rt Femur AP View X-Ray

Patients may carry on with their daily routines after the X-Ray is done.
