To compare the detection rate and visibility of the ligaments in the Lisfranc joint with a single 3D (−SPACE) MR sequence and three orthogonal PD fat-saturated sequences. Thirty-one asymptomatic feet and 15 patients with posttraumatic pain in the Lisfranc joint were evaluated with a 3D-SPACE-sequence (0.5 mm section thickness, acquisition time 10:22 min, secondary reformations) and three orthogonal PD fs sequences (2 mm section thickness, 9:20 min). The Lisfranc-ligament, the dorsal and plantar… CONTINUE READING
