Tips for Scanning Patients in the Prone Position

Prone positioning is the preferred method for scanning. It provides a better view of the critical anatomy of the posterior ankle, foot and lower leg for optimal fit. The key to proper positioning includes:

  1. Positioning the foot in subtalar neutral and the forefoot is maximally pronated on the rearfoot with pressure on metatarsals 4 and 5.
  2. The first ray is plantar flexed to pronate the forefoot.
