Unfortunately no….agree with Stephanie that it’s hard to appreciate the full extent of the fracture.
Sometimes I get a feeling that simple buckle fractures might be visualized adequetly enough, but I don’t think there is enough literature for that.
I do use it during reductions to verify good alignment, and to try to prevent repeat reductions. Still would get an X-ray at the end of procedure though….
