PODIATRY X-RAYS

Your podiatrist has referral rights for all lower limb X-Rays. Whether it’s your knee, ankle or foot they are able to request imaging to help determine the cause of your pain. And we bulk bill all podiatry X-Rays, six days a week.

BULK BILLED PODIATRY X-RAYS

Our friendly radiographers (the people who capture the pictures) will interpret your podiatrist’s x-ray referral and capture the most appropriate images to answer their clinical questions.

All x-rays are bulk billed, so you won’t have any out-of-pocket expenses if you have a Medicare card. We also accept Department of Veterans Affairs, Workers Compensation and Motor Vehicle Accident referrals. Just let our receptionists know if any of those apply to you.

Our clinic has a lot of experience taking podiatry X-Rays and we have two podiatrists who have consulted with us to develop our protocols to fit with what podiatrists want. In particular, we strive to capture biomechanical X-Rays in a functional (weight bearing) way, wherever possible and appropriate.

STRUCTURE & FUNCTION

Biomechanical podiatry requires precise imaging of the lower limb anatomy in a functional position to understand the effect of weight bearing on leg length and joint position. We get what your podiatrist is looking for and consider it throughout the process of capturing your X-Rays.

Functional Leg Length Scans

Your podiatrist may be wondering if your apparent leg length difference is “structural” or “functional”. That is, are your legs actually different lengths to one another, or do they just appear that way because of other factors like fallen arches or pelvis “twist”. A standing leg length scan can quickly and accurately tell your podiatrist which it is.
