What is the minimum amount of distal metatarsals that should be visualized on a sesamoid projection? 3
The CR is perpendicular to the IR directed to what landmark on the sesamoid projection? posterior aspect of the first MTP joint
In the AP weight-bearing feet projection how much and which way is the CR angled? 15 degrees posteriorly
Where is the CR directed to for the weight-bearing AP feet projection? midpoint between the feet at the level of the base of the metatarsals
How much of the distal tib-fib should be visible on the weight-bearing lateral foot projection? a minimum of 1 inch of distal tib-fib
What are stress views of the ankles used for? evaluate ankle joint for joint separation and ligament tear or rupture
In the stress view of the ankle from a true AP position which way is inversion and which way is eversion? inversion is stressing the ankle medially and eversion is stressing the ankle laterally
