This week's #xrayoftheweek is this single axial slice from a spine MRI study. Two questions: (1) Can you see an animal in this image? I can see a cat! (2) What is the actual name of the sign seen here and what is it due to?
The #xrayoftheweek is the subject of a poster I have co-authored with a colleague (and superstar GI radiologist in the making, James Stephenson), and is being displayed at the Royal College of Radiologists' Annual Scientific Meeting from Monday 7th to Wednesday 9th September 2015. We conducted a survey using social media (SoMe; Instagram, Figure 1, Google+ and Twitter) to ask healthcare professionals what they called this fracture (other than a 5th metacarpal fracture), what their profession was, and where they were based.
