here’s a link to the inside scoop :) But my daily A-Z posts are more general and informative, just so, if the time comes, you know what someone is going through because, trust me, it’s not ‘just a broken foot!’
WEIGHT BEARING X-RAYS - The weightbearing foot series will usually be composed of a weightbearing DP foot radiograph and a weightbearing lateral foot radiograph with possible additional views as directed by an orthopaedic surgeon or if the radiographers need to highlight an area of pathology. It
is important that alignment is assessed using weightbearing radiographs
because the functional position of the bones of the foot is needed, in other words, you can't see the damage unless you make the foot act as normal.
