Question 1.
List four (4) features of these images. (4 marks)

Examiner Comments: Beyond the initial description of the abnormalities the last 3 parts of the question were typically answered very generically. This was a complicated X-ray with multiple abnormalities. Candidates should describe several of the separate abnormalities rather than multiple features i.e. displacement, angulation, comminution, of just one or two of the abnormalities present.
