To celebrate hitting 50 episodes we had a selection of numerous previous guests on to catch up and chat with. We also invited two of our most popular audience members, “Tobes” and “JW” to guest host with us and ask questions, and they were great. A longer and (much) less serious episode than usual, which was immense fun and a bit of a shambles. Enjoy.
In this episode Consultant Podiatric Surgeon Ryan McCallum joined us to talk all things X-Ray; How do you get started in requesting them from a legal point of view? When is requesting an X-Ray appropriate? What views are commonly requested (and why)? Non-weightbearing or weight-bearing X-Rays? What are the ABCS of X-Ray reporting?
