Repeatability and agreement of ultrasonography with computed tomography for evaluating forefoot structure in the coronal plane
from Journal of Foot and Ankle Research
Forefoot structure is important to understand some foot problems such as hallux valgus and metatarsalgia. Ultrasonography is a highly portable, noninvasive, low cost, and fast imaging method, especially when compared to magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and radiography. As the use of US for evaluating forefoot bony structure has not been validated, except for the presence of synovitis, erosions and bursitis within the forefoot in people with inflammatory arthritis, the purpose of this study was to determine whether ultrasonography is a reliable method for evaluating forefoot structure.
