Radius – Left/Right

  1. Locate the anterior aspect of the radius bone.  At the distal end, the anterior aspect will be smoother than the posterior aspect (there is the dorsal tubercle, a bump).
  2. When viewed anteriorly, the radial tubercle towards the proximal end will point the direction as per the side of the body it is from, i.e. right radius will have the radial tubercle on the right side.
