Sectional imaging of the foot and ankle: CT and MRI

  • T. Tavernier


Sectional imaging, first by computed tomography (CT) and more recently by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), has proved to be of major importance in diagnostic evaluation of different foot pathologies. The origin of this slice imaging was the conventional tomogram, the indications for which have now almost disappeared.
