Orthopaedic Word Find

The questions in this Word find are not designed to be easy. Some of the questions should challenge you to undertake online research, open a book, unlock information stored in the dark and dusty areas of your brain or inspire you to have a chat with a Colleague, Radiologist or an Ortho­paedic Surgeon.To get the most out of the Word find, try to explore the information and make links with your current knowledge, rather that just finding the answer that will fill in the gap. For example 'What sign in the elbow arouses suspicion of a fracture or joint capsule damage?'. Go beyond the question and find out what physi­ological changes occur in the joint as a result of the pathological condition that cause this 'sign' to be visible on a radiograph.
