    Kienböck Disease, Posteroanterior X-Ray

    Posteroanterior x-ray of right wrist showing cysts and sclerosis of lunate typical of Kienböck disease. The metal plate is evidence of a radial shortening osteotomy that was done in an effort to unload the lunate and potentially treat this condition.
