Frequently Asked Questions

The oblique radiographs are considered to be halfway between AP (and the PA) and any lateral radiographs. The patient would be rotated to about 45 degree from the lateral (or frontal).

The nomenclature for your oblique film is not very clear. If the patient' has their left side would be closer to the film than right side, then the view would be considered as  'left oblique'.

An anterior-posterior and medial oblique view would require the foot to an obliquely positioned to 30 to 40 degrees.

 The Lateral radiograph would require the patient to be the recumbent on your affected side with your knee flexed.

The plantar surface of your foot is also perpendicular to your image receptor, which will then acquire a true lateral image.

One of the main advantages of an oblique view would be that it shows your true shape and the size of front face of an object, which could be important for showing the appropriate dimensions or the specifications.

It would also allow you to view the depth and the orientation of an object, which would be further helpful in showing the functions of the system.

  • The Two views
  • Two abnormalities
  • Two joints—always image the joint above as well.
  • Two sides—if you are not sure of the difficulty of the X- ray, compare it with other side.
  • Two views too many—Nowadays, CT has replaced X-Ray in many parts of the world

The literature also presents the vast ranges of any subtalar motion that ranges from about 5° to 65°.

An average ROM for the pronation is around 5° and 20° for the supination angle. The Inversion and the eversion ROM is identified as 30° and 18°, respectively. The Total inversion-eversion motion is known to be about 2:1 and a 3:2 ratio of the inversion-to-eversion movement.

For Foot AP Oblique View (Medial Rotation)
