Liberti Tarigan | Juliana Lasniar Sidauruk



The clavicle is an S-shaped bone that articulates laterally with the acromioma process of the scapula, medially with the manubrium of the clavicular notch to form the clavicular joint. An avulsion fracture is a disconnection of the clavicle bone caused by direct and indirect trauma in the position of the arm being cut off or pulled out (out- stretched hand) because the trauma continues from the wrist to the clavicle. Radiography is an appropriate method to show abnormali- ties in the os calvicula. The aim is to show the anatomy of the clavicle bone and its abnormalities. This examination uses the Antero-Pos- terior projection. The X-ray aircraft used is GE with a capacity of 500 mA. The tape used is 30 cm x 40 cm. Processing film used is Com- puted Radiography.
