German term or phrase: tang.
Roentgen Beinachsaufnahme, Knie seitlich, Patella ***tang.***, LWS intern:

I can't seem to find "tang." spelled out anywhere; I know it must be an X-ray position (projection) but what does it mean? Any suggestions?

This is called the sunrise view because the patella appears to be rising over the horizon. This view is taken with the knee flexed. The radiograph is taken with the x-ray beam tangential to the patella parallel to
the long axis of the lower extremity.
