Disorders of the foot and ankle are common, and significant strides have recently been made to understand and treat them. Imaging of the Foot and Ankle addresses the current medical advances, with a special emphasis on sports medicine. It integrates all the current imaging modalities, from plain film to MRI, CT to nuclear medicine. Many disorders in the foot have subtle radiographic findings, and many different entities have similar clinical presentations. Consequently, differential diagnosis is emphasized in both the text and in the tables. Written by a musculoskeletal radiologist in collaboration with two orthopedic surgeons, Imaging of the Foot and Ankle emphasizes those cases which are pertinent to daily practice in radiology.A grade I rupture will show thickening of the tendon and foci of high signal within the tendon on T2-weighted images (Fig. 7.22). Grade II ... accuracy for MRI compared to surgery in determining the stage of posterior tibial tendon rupture.
