Imaging of Tibio-Tarsal Joint Injuries
The imaging of tibio-tarsal joint injuries varies according to the position and type of injury, which in turn usually depend on the type of accident. Injuries can be divided into either direct or indirect trauma. They both involve, mainly or exclusively, the skeletal apparatus and therefore the most common injuries are fractures. The ligament-capsule structures are frequently also involved particularly in indirect trauma and damage to them may be isolated and responsible for subsequent articular instability [1–4].
