    X-rays of the right ankle
     

    Anteroposterior view: Multiple radiopaque loose bodies adjacent to the medial malleolus, associated with soft tissue swelling.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal bone; Imaging Technique: Plain radiographic studies; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Connective tissue disorders;

    Lateral view: Multiple radiopaque loose bodies projected on the posterior side of the talus.
