Brief Answer: Please send post surgery and present images Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing in to us. I have read through your query in detail. CT scan is a detailed examination and you might be speaking about the right wrist joint. The report finding mentions that the fracture of the radius bone near the wrist joint is showing non union with broken implant. It means that due to some reason the metallic implant which was inserted into your wrist has broken. For this you must consult your orthopaedician immediately and et treatment. I would like to see images just after surgery and present ones to get netter ideaof your condition. Please do write back with updates. Regards, Dr.Vivek
