Fracture gap in the 5th metatarsal bone
X-Ray
X-rays are an indispensable diagnostic aid for us orthopaedists in recognising and diagnosing injuries (e.g., broken bones, dislocations) and illnesses (e.g., tumours, changes in mineral content as found in osteoporosis).

X-rays can be conducted quickly and easily in our practice with no pain for the patient and only a negligible level of radiation, thanks to our use of the very latest technology.

This foot x-ray clearly reveals the fracture gap in the 5th metatarsal bone.
