User avatar Hello,
I see your concern with the trapezium - the distance between the trapezium and the first metacarpal.

I looked at some normal xrays of the hand and some do show this type of relationship therefore it is not concerning. And I see no fracture lines in the trapezium.

You may also double check with the radiologist.

Thanks for writing in.

Take care.
