    X-Ankle - Introduction


    An X-ray of the ankle is a frequently conducted examination and is mainly used for diagnosing a fracture.
    Some of the key topics are Weber classification, Lauge-Hansen classification, syndesmosis and talar luxation.
    Prior to this module, it is wise to read the Fracture General Principles module.

    This module consists of the components indication/technique, normal anatomy, checklist and pathology.
