The biceps tendon becomes more visible with the arm flexed.
First, locate ➞ LU-5 radial to the biceps tendon in the cubital crease and ➞ LU-9 radial to the radial artery on the wrist joint space (➞ 3.3.3) between the proximal row of carpals and the radius/ulna. By moving the hand, the joint space becomes more easily palpable. Next, find the midpoint of the distance between ➞ LU-5 and ➞ LU-9 using the spreading hands technique (➞2.3.3). LU-6 is located 1 cun proximal to the midpoint of this distance.
➞ P-4 is located more medially (between the tendons) and distally (1 cun distal to the midpoint of the distance).
