The technique used was as follows: Using a General Electric LogiQ e ultrasound system with a 10-12 mHz linear array probe, the proximal border of the procedure area was defined by visualizing the radiolunate joint with the probe in the anatomical sagittal plane, and drawing a line on the volar forearm skin along the intersection of the anatomic axial plane at the radiolunate joint, with the skin (line PR, Figure 1).
