Abstract

ABSTRACT
Ankle injuries are most common in adult papulation. It is most of the time cumbersome to decide treatment on clinical
examination and assessment. Majority of times patients are subjected to unnecessary radiography and delay. This leads
to overburdening of casualty set ups and wastage of resources to be allocated to the needy and deserved patients.
In our set up most of our patients stress on radiographs to be advised just for no reasons. On the other hand quiet
often the injury is taken a minor one leading to non-unions, chronic ankle pain and instabilities. Commonly performed
radiography is Anteroposterior x-rays and in few circumstances CT is advised on patients complaints and demands.
