In brief: X-rays

This abnormally wide gap can be diagnosed by radiologic studies such as x-ray, mri, ct scan or bone scan.
Manual testing by a healthcare professional can also be used. The patient is placed in various positions and pressure is applied in such a way that it provokes pain and maybe movement in the pubis.
