Can anyone help I am doing a radiology transcript for AP bilateral knees. I am not sure but it sounds like they are saying FP joint space. Does anyone know what the FP abbreviation is?

There is some minimal spurring medially of the femur and tibia FP joint space.

I googled FP joint space and this is the expansion. The "faux profil" (FP)(oblique view)

Curiosity got the best of me so I did a little research--I was unable to document "faux profil" in my Stedman's Radiology, Orthopaedic, or Abbreviations Word books. When I googled "faux profil" (with quotes) the only hit I got was this post.

If I was doing this dictation I would not expand it in the body at all, and even if it was in the diagnosis section I would leave it as is since I cannot say with any certainty what the abbreviation stands for.

For future reference, if you don't have an abbreviation book, I would recommend acronymfinder.com -- they have a medicine and science tab which would further narrow results. I use it as a first-line reference when I'm transcribing and if I can't find what I want then I go to my Stedman's Abbreviations book because they have acronyms that are not found on that site. I google as a last resort.

Good luck!

some acronyms like p.o., q.d. will come only abbreviated and "FP" will fall in the same category and the doctor will require it only abbreviated anywhere in the text. Any medicals here to explain this more clearly otherwise this can be the only explanation. FP without quotes clearly gives the meaning of the acronym "FP joint space meaning oblique view of joint space."

Any way you can try this link http://www.radiologyassistant.nl/en/42a29ec06b9e8. I googled in quotes "oblique view of joint space."

Thanks

As I said above, there is another bone in the knee that starts with P. Both the femur and the tibia articulate with the patella...

Is it the popliteal bone within the knees?
