Hallux Valgus: Deformity and Diagnosis
Hallux Valgus, a deformity commonly called a bunion, occurs when there is a medial deviation of the first metatarsal and lateral deviation of the great toe. Over time, an untreated bunion worsens and can create other difficulties in the foot anatomy and functioning. While two-dimension has traditionally been used to measure the severity of the deformity, three-dimensional imaging, such a WBCT, can provide greater information to doctor’s looking to perform surgery.
