All patients with acute scaphoid fractures treated at our hospital in a 4-year period that had a CT scan and plain radiographs were evaluated. The maximum displacement seen on either AP or lateral X-rays was measured as well as the amount of palmar flexion through the fracture as seen on the lateral X-ray. The differences were calculated and the mean of the sum of the differences was calculated.
