In 343 patients with sprained ankles the results of conventional stress a.p. roentgenograms in supination and stressed X-rays in lateral view with a device, similar to the technique, described by Noesberger, are compared. In 63 of 91 pathological findings the lesions could only be diagnosed in X-rays in lateral view. The advantages and disadvantages of both techniques are discussed. In the authors' opinion the stressed X-rays in lateral projection are a useful method for diagnosis of ligamentous lesions of the ankle joint.
