Illustrated by nearly 1,000 scans, photographs, and line drawings, the book provides complete coverage of the techniques and applications of the full range of procedures used in imaging of the foot and ankle--including radiography, tomography, magnification radiography, xeroradiography, ultrasound, thermography, skeletal scintigraphy, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, three-dimensional CT and MRI reconstruction, arthrography, tenography, arteriography, venography, and lymphangiography. The contributors--leading radiologists and orthopedic surgeons from the Mayo Clinic--offer systematic guidance on clinical imaging of all foot and ankle conditions: trauma, arthritis, bone and soft tissue neoplasms, infection, bone and soft tissue ischemia, and miscellaneous conditions, such as metabolic disease, that may involve the foot and ankle. Full consideration is also given to the complex problems involved in evaluating adult and pediatric foot disorders. The authors detail the clinical features of each disease, identify the abnormalities that must be shown to establish a diagnosis, and outline the best sequence of imaging studies for demonstrating these abnormalities. The prognostic significance of findings seen on images is fully explained, and close attention is given to the use of imaging studies in treatment planning and patient follow-up.
