Digital Radiography can be especially useful with Podiatry assessments. Below is an example of a front foot before and after corrective shoeing on the same day. Note how the corrective shoeing changes the weight bearing angle of the bony column. The shoe was placed back farther on the foot and a wedge-type shoe was applied. This decreases the amount of stress on the tendons and ligaments along the back of the pastern and foot and also eases breakover.
