Joe Biden underwent a CT scan to check on hairline fractures he suffered over Thanksgiving weekend
President-elect Joe Biden headed Saturday morning to the radiology department of Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania Hospital.

The former vice-president and senator underwent a weight-bearing CT scan as a follow-up for hairline fractures he suffered in his foot over Thanksgiving weekend, according to KYW Newsradio.

“The small fracture in the intermediate cuneiform is barely detectable and the small fracture in the lateral cuneiform is healing as expected. No more extensive injury was identified,” said his physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, the director of executive medicine at GW Medical Faculty Associates, in a statement.

Biden suffered the fractures from a slip he incurred while playing with his dog. An initial X-ray did not show any obvious fractures but more detailed CT imaging confirmed the hairline fractures in the midfoot. He donned a walking booth for a few days after and now has a small limp, according to the Associated Press.

The follow-up this past weekend was an assessment of how well his foot was healing. Biden arrived at the hospital at 11:20 a.m. and left an hour later.

"He appeared in good spirits and appeared to talk to a pedestrian on the street,” according to a pool report. "He gave friendly waves to reporters and a few scattered onlookers on the street as he walked away. He continued to wave from the perch of a black SUV before climbing inside."
