Figure 4 No fracture on lateral radiographs (A), but positive fad pad sign and confirmed fracture on computed tomography study (B). A 48-year-old lady, who had a distal forearm trauma. On lateral radiographs no fracture can be detected, but detailed analysis of the CR shows a thickened pronator quadratus complex measuring 8.5 mm (positive fad pad sign without verification of a wrist fracture on CR) (A). Computed tomography however reveals a fissurale epiphysial fracture (B).
