General Guideline Principles for X-rays for
Diagnosing CRPS for workers compensation patients
The New York State workers compensation board has developed these guidelines to help physicians, podiatrists, and other healthcare professionals provide appropriate treatment for X-rays for Diagnosing CRPS.
These Workers Compensation Board guidelines are intended to assist healthcare professionals in making decisions regarding the appropriate level of care for their patients with ankle and foot disorders.
The guidelines are not a substitute for clinical judgement or professional experience. The ultimate decision regarding care must be made by the patient in consultation with his or her healthcare provider.
X-rays for Diagnosing CRPS
X-rays for Diagnosing CRPS are recommended although they are generally used to conquer other illnesses, they can help with the diagnosis of CRPS lasting longer than six months. Symptoms of potential CRPS have been present for at least 3 to 6 months with an undetermined diagnosis.
To diagnose further conditions, samples earlier than three months may be acquired.
Frequency, dosage, and duration: one assessment. Rarely would a second be suggested, such as if there were worries about a hidden fracture?
