Hebrew term or phrase: שורש כף היד
A person who was injured in a motor scooter crash suffered a number of injuries. One of them is an injury to the
שורש כף היד
What is the proper medical term for this?

The diagnoses list includes:
TIBIAL FRACTURE., Rt., PLATEAU WITH AVULSION PCL
FX RADIUS NOS-CLOSED, Rt., STYLOID PROCESS MINIMALLY DISPLACED

Explanation:
the styloid process is part of the wrist. I presume they mean the styloid process of the radius.
There is also the styloid process of the ulna as well as of the temporal bone.

I would presume that the part of the radius that was fractured was the distal end of the radius, the end that contributes to the wrist.
