|Foot fractures in the Emergency Department|
There are a number of confounding factors responsible for errors in image interpretation. The image quality, number of views available and lack of previous imaging can be important factors. The clinical input is also an important factor in terms of the quantity and quality of clinical information provided [1-4].
Foot fractures are common fractures missed in Emergency Radiology. It is important to accept that film radiography can be equivocal and that further imaging may be required with a relatively low threshold for CT imaging if the patient is non-weightbearing.
