The target of this work is to reveal detailed anatomical references in foot MR imaging, in order to display its real diagnostic sensitivity in a focal district for different kinds of sport activities. From an anatomical viewpoint, undergoing traction and compression, foot’s structures are particularly involved in dinamic and static body postures. The 3-D structures identification and their signal analysis explain the interest for this imaging method in foot’s major and minor pathology.
In this work we intend to present only the anatomical features of the MR imaging, reserving to report in a further elaboration our experience in pathology, indications and appropriate diagnosis and lecture. It’s our belief that the knowledge of identification and resolution limits of the single parts is fundamental for any specialist physician. Examples are presented in the work with emphasized contrast and detail in tridimensional imaging anatomy. Physical and hystological basis of the signal explains the possibility of utilizing MR imaging in different pathologies. The diagnostic result is tightly due to the advanced hardware and software tecnology.
