The Semisupinated Oblique View of the Wrist

The semisupinated oblique view of the wrist is an oblique view obtained by resting the back of the hand on a 45-degree wedge.

This view shows the dorsal cortex of the radius without the overlap from the ulna seen on the lateral view. This view also highlights the pisiform bone and the pisotriquetral joint, and allows for visualization of loose bodies in the superior and inferior recesses of the pisotriquetral joint. The palmar portion of the hook of the hamate is also well seen on this view.
