The 10 major ligaments and nine major tendons of the ankle were evaluated in 17 ankle MR studies to determine the incidence of visualization of each structure in each of the three orthogonal planes. High-resolution technique was used, with 3 mm slice thickness and an in-plane resolution of 0.6 mm. Of the 19 ligaments and tendons evaluated, 18 demonstrated more than 70% frequency of visualization in at least one imaging plane. However, seven ligaments and three tendons demonstrated 0… CONTINUE READING
