Overview


What is X - Ray Finger AP & LAT Right SIde?

X-ray finger AP & LAT right side is recommended by doctors to find the cause of pain, tenderness, swelling, or deformity in the finger. LAT stands for the Lateral view that demonstrates the finger in the lateral position, and in the AP (or anteroposterior) view, the beams pass from front to back. The AP view is performed to ascertain which finger is being imaged with adjacent fingers in the field of view.


The AP and Lat projection post-surgery also helps determine whether the bones have healed properly or are set in alignment. The overall test may take 15 minutes, but the exposure time to radiation is less than a second. This test is safe and pain-free.

Why is X - Ray Finger AP & LAT Right SIde done?

  1. To diagnose the fracture of the bones of one or more fingers and to monitor the healing of the broken bone, after it has been set.
  2. To diagnose any suspected infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones and arthritis (inflammation of joints).
