SYMPTOMS: The patient presented with right ankle pain and instability. After physical examination, plain x-rays were performed which provided no definite pathology. The patient was referred for a high resolution 3T MRI of the ankle at Siker Imaging. The study was performed with the aid of a specialty 8 channel foot and ankle “ski-boot” coil. Extremely high resolution images were obtained. Dr. Don Resnick of UCSD interpreted the study and was able to make a definitive diagnosis aiding in the subsequent treatment and recovery of the patient. Representative images with pathology clearly labeled and annotated are presented below.

We are completely sterilizing the office and equipment after every patient.

We have restricted all visitors.

We have adjusted our lobby so that we can ensure multiple patients are not in the office at the same time
