Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the foot can be a valuable diagnostic tool when managing patients with sports injuries to the foot. Improvements in technology are providing foot and ankle surgeons with detailed anatomic images with better resolution and enhanced diagnostic accuracy. While MRI is a powerful tool, it is important to understand the implications of ordering these studies without a particular diagnosis in mind. It is crucial that surgeons be comfortable interpreting MRI scans so they may be able to use them appropriately to guide their clinical decision making. The objective of the following chapter is to review several common sports injuries to the foot and their associated MRI findings.
