Weight Bearing Stands – which one to choose?
Patients often require imaging for joint-related trauma or pain. After a history and examination, plain radiographs are often the next step in investigating a patient’s musculoskeletal complaints. Patients with possible surgical pathology, such as osteoarthritis, may be referred to an orthopedic surgeon, who often repeats the initial films. because the original films were not ordered weight-bearing. So why weight-bearing X-rays? American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society says avoid non-weightbearing X-ray evaluation of the foot and ankle when patients are able to stand. The functional position of the foot and ankle is one of weightbearing. Foot and ankle deformity may be decreased or absent on non-weightbearing x-rays as compared to weightbearing x-rays. Therefore, foot and ankle disorders including flatfeet, ligamentous injuries of the midfoot, ankle arthritis, bunions, and hammertoes that are well-demonstrated on weightbearing x-rays may be underestimated or not appreciated at all on non-weightbearing x-rays. Therefore, when possible, weightbearing x-rays of the foot and ankle are preferred in order to give the most accurate assessment of the functional bony anatomy of the foot and ankle.
