    Abbreviation used in connection with an x-ray. Doctor's orders request an x-ray of the:

    Hombro, Femur, Rodil ARX

    I assume that "rodil" is rodilla, but what does ARX stand for?

    Hello:

    It's a typo.

    It should say:

    Hombro, Femur, Rodil ARX = Hombro, Femur, Rodilla RX (where RX = Rayos X)

    X-rays of Shoulder, Femur and knee
