This work explores a new approach to demonstrate possible forearm fractures in humans as an educating means for student radiographers. The Design of abnormal bones are not normally available as phantoms; the manufacturer usually produces normal human musculoskeletal models for educational purposes. Hence fractures and abnormalities are usually first time observed by the students in clinical practice at the hospital; the author believes that this work can positively improve the clinical skill laboratories sessions at an earlier stage prior to the hospital training. With the help of such phantom, it can be considered as foundation practical sessions added to radiographic techniques, clinical practice and pathology courses to students, radiographers, and technologists. Moreover, a model was developed with high quality and low cost produced by local materials for medical education purposes. The present result indicated that the use of models for education and training purposes where interactive training tools will improve the learning experience, and reduces the time on task for students and the material costs as well.
