Stress X-ray with the use of the TELOS device is a test performed during the diagnosis of joint instability. It allows for precise and objective determination of whether the tested ligament is healthy (whether it fulfills its function after an injury or surgery). The test is performed in a forced (stress) position, and the assessment is usually comparative – we examine the healthy side and the sick side.
Stress images are taken:
- in the case of suspected ligament insufficiency and ambiguous results of other tests (imaging and orthopedic),
- to evaluate the results of surgical treatment.
