Still X-ray bones remains the first tool and diagnostic test performed providing invaluable information to help the surgeon to know the fracture and underlying pathology to take decision about surgical intervention. CT and MRI have further strengthen the process to be more precise and informative. We have tried to include all necessary details wherever needed.
We are grateful to Dr MD Rahalkar, Dr Anand Rahalkar and Dr Anju Virmani for providing X-rays. Healthier suggestions are welcome.
