Rationale and Hypothesis: Standard practice for differentiating fractures from sprains requires conventional radiographs. Up to 21% of wrist and ankle radiographs in children are negative at a local cost of over £100,000 per annum, approximately £12 million per annum across England and Wales. Our recent pilot study in adults confirmed that vibration analysis in injured patients causes no discomfort.Objectives: To assess the ability of vibration...
