Anterior right

should be a "1" confidence.

as they seem to X-ray the hands and feet in Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am assuming that "pés" = feet in Portuguese.

Please ignore my first suggestion and take the second one more seriously as I realise now that "em" = in, so the former would not make sense.

agree  Muriel Vasconcellos: I actually think your first answer is correct. The style is telegraphic, the doc just wants an X-ray of the feet, AR view and is misusing the term "Rx".
