PURPOSE To assess the effect of prone, supine, and upright weight-bearing body positions on visibility, position, shape, and size of Morton neuroma during magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighteen patients with 20 Morton neuromas underwent MR imaging of the forefoot in prone (plantar flexion of the foot), supine (dorsiflexion of the foot), and upright weight-bearing positions. Visibility (3 = good, 2 = moderate, 1 = poor), position relative to the metatarsal bone, shape… CONTINUE READING
