  • Figure 1
    CT
     

    Sagittal CT in bone window shows degenerative changes in the inferior surface of talus and superior surface of calcaneus. Opposite normal foot for comparison.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Inflammation;

    Sagittal CT in soft tissue window shows soft tissue density replacing normal fat in the left sinus tarsi. Opposite normal foot for comparison.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Inflammation;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    MRI
     

    Sagittal T1W MRI shows effacement of normal fat with hypointensity in the left tarsal canal. Opposite normal foot shown for comparison.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Inflammation;

    Sagittal T1W MRI at the level of left sinus tarsi shows hypointensity and effacement of normal fat. Opposite normal foot shows the normal cervical ligament surrounded by fat.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Inflammation;

    Axial T1W MRI shows effacement of normal fat with hypointensity in the left sinus tarsi. Opposite normal foot shown for comparison.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Inflammation;

    Coronal T1W MRI shows effacement of normal fat with hypointensity in the left tarsal canal and sinus tarsi. Opposite normal foot shown for comparison.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Inflammation;

    Sagittal T2W MRI shows hyperintensity in the left sinus tarsi.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Inflammation;

    Sagittal post contrast T1W MRI shows enhancement in the left sinus tarsi.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Inflammation;
