Abstract
Ligamentous injuries of the ankle joint can be demonstrated radiologically by special techniques using lateral and A.P. projections. A device is described for obtaining the requisite views. It enables accurate projections to be achieved and a standardised technique is assured by applying a pull of constant weight. The problem of muscle spasm, resulting as a reflex from pain, is discussed.
