Application of X-ray image measurement in the early diagnosis of sports injury of ankle ligament
Objectives: To study the value of X-ray analysis method of ankle fracture based on injury mechanism to improve the imaging diagnosis level of ankle fracture.
Methods: This study was conducted from January 2016 to December 2019. It included 105 cases of fractures caused by sprained ankle joints. Their age was between 21-81 years with an average of 49.5 years, The traditional X-ray analysis method (Group-A) and the injury mechanism-based ankle fracture X-ray analysis method (Group-B) were used to analyze X-ray image data. Group-B also performed Weber classification and Lauge-Hansen classification on cases. Installment.
Results: Of the 105 patients with ankle fractures, 97 patients in Group-B were able to make Lauge-Hansen classification. Of these 97 ankle fractures, 137 were found in Group-A, and 158 were found in Group-B. The wrong diagnosis of fracture in Group-A was 18%, and the wrong diagnosis of fracture in Group-B was 0.5%. There was a statistically significant difference between the two groups (P <0.05).
Conclusion: The X-ray analysis method of ankle fractures based on injury mechanism can effectively improve the detection rate of hidden ankle fractures and high fibular fractures, and reduce the missed diagnosis, which is superior to the traditional X-ray analysis methods. At the same time, Weber classification, Lauge-Hansen classification and staging can be made for most cases, which is conducive to guiding clinical treatment.
