Why take weightbearing X rays?
X-rays of a patient with severe pain in the back of his foot.
The non-weightbearing view does not demonstrate any cause for the patient's pain.
The weight bearing view taken a few days later in the same patient demonstrates established arthritis.
The patient went on to have a successful subtalar joint fusion by Mr Dawe which eradicated his pain.
