Advantages of the Rosenberg View

This X-ray view may ofer information about narrowing of the normal joint space which is not available in a straight-leg X-ray. The patient stands with the knees bent to 45 degrees against the X-ray plate, while the X-ray machine is behind the knee at an angle slightly downwards (45° flexion PA weight-bearing view).
