At the end of this course the professional will be able to: 1. Recognize three standard x-ray views for the ankle. 2. Differentiate between the characteristics of the AP and mortise view when evaluating the alignment of the leg, ankle and foot. 3. Identify the “keystone” of the ankle joint. 4. Define tarsal coalition. 5. Recognize the measurements for assessing the syndesmosis for injury on the three basic views of the ankle follow a “four, five, ten” rule. 6. Define Jones fracture. 7. Define Sever’s disease. 8. Differentiate between the Lisfranc’s joint and its relationship to frequency of dislocations when compared to other joints. 9. Recognize percentage of ankle sprains that deal with the lateral ligaments. 10. Identify three results that syndesmosis injuries may occur from. 11. Recognize standard views of the glenohumeral joint are anteroposterior projections in four positions. 12. Differentiate between the appropriate patient position for the West Point View and the appropriate patient position for the standard AP view of the AC joint. 13. Recognize glenohumeral subluxations and dislocations occur in the anteroinferior direction more than 97% of the time. 14. Identify four characteristics indicative of successful rehabilitation of the rotator cuff after repair. 15. Recognize normal alignment shape of the glenohumeral joint in the lateral view. 16. Define Bankart lesion. 17. Recognize characteristics of normal alignment of the AC joint in the AP view. 18. Identify three standard views of the hand. 19. Recognize three standard views of the elbow and hand position. 20. Recognize the “carrying angle” in normal alignment of the elbow in the AP view. 21. Identify three types of radial head fractures. 22. Recognize the most common form of carpal instability. 23. Define SLAC. 24. Define Kienbock’s disease. 25. Recognize abnormal P/A view of the ulna and radius and differentiate between “negative ulnar variance” and “positive ulnar variance.” 26. Identify characteristics of “Boxer’s fracture.” 27. Recognize characteristics of the thumb including structure, location, and mobility in relation to other digits of the hand. 28. Recognize and identify sagittal, coronal and axial orientations of the knee. 29. Recognize the normal view of the ACL including its thickness. 30. Identify characteristics that make the ACL distinguishable from the PCL on MRI. 31. Recognize 6 signs of a torn ACL. 32. Recognize the PCL is best identified on MRI in the sagittal cut. 33. Recognize the MCL and/or LCL tears are best identified in a coronal series. 34. Identify contiguous points for hyaline cartilage in a normal view of the knee. 35. Define lateral patellar dislocation and its location of bone marrow edema.

By James Swain, MPT, Kenneth Bush, MPT, PhD and Juliette Brosing, PhD. This course utilizes text from the hardback textbook by James Swain, MPT, Kenneth Bush, MPT, PhD and Juliette Brosing, PhD “Diagnostic Imaging for Physical Therapists ©2009. Diagnostic Imaging for Physical Therapists gives you the knowledge to understand the basic principles of musculoskeletal imaging and how to interpret radiographic images in your physical therapy practice. This straightforward, highly illustrated text is organized by body region and covers all the fundamentals with an emphasis on standard, two-dimensional x-rays.
