Posterior-anterior weight-bearing radiograph in 15 degree knee flexion in medial osteoarthritis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the degree of knee flexion at which: (1) degenerative joint space narrowing is best seen, (2) the tibial plateau is best visualized and (3) the tibiofemoral angle is most correct, in order to assess the degree of flexion in the anteroposterior radiographic view that is most useful for assessing medial compartment osteoarthritis (OA) of… (More)
