Foot-related indication  
Supra-pedal indication

Have you ever participated in a multi-center trial before?
If so, please describe in “additional information” below.  
Have you previously completed online “Human Subjects Training” like that offered by CITI (www.citiprogram.org/Default.asp?)? 
Are you obligated to use a specific IRB at your practice site?
If Yes, what is the IRB name:

Do you have x-ray facilities located WITHIN the confines of your office (e.g., where you are responsible for the read), or do you send out for x-ray services (e.g., where a radiologist provides the read)?
