A radiology technician takes X–ray images of a joint while a physician or other qualified healthcare provider applies stress to hold the joint in a position that the provider could not achieve through routine positioning.  These special stress views help the provider gauge the extent of an injury prior to surgery, assess whether an injury is healing without surgery. This service may include imaging of the contralateral joint or joint on the opposite side as necessary.
