Abstract
Ultrasound of the ankle and foot in the diagnosis of pathology is challenging because of the numerous small structures that constitute the anatomy of the region, which is precisely why ultrasound has an advantage over other imaging modalities. The higher spatial resolution and ability to perform dynamic maneuvers enables accurate diagnosis of many diseases affecting the region. Although history and physical examination remain the basis for the initial evaluation, ultrasound helps in excluding a more significant condition. This article describes the anatomy and pathology of commonly encountered lesions and provides a knowledge basis for evaluation of the ankle and foot. ? 2012 Elsevier Inc.
