The objective of this study was to determine if an alternate posteroanterior (PA) position for the routine clavicle series can reduce unnecessary radiation exposure to breast tissue. The basis of this research is to change the paradigm of routine clavicle projections to ultimately reduce the dose administered to radiosensitive tissues.
