SYMPTOMS:

A 50-year-old female patient experienced pain and swelling of the ankle as well as instability after twisting her ankle and falling. Her podiatrist referred her for 3Tesla (3T) MRI of her ankle. Extremely high resolution images were obtained using a dedicated 8-Channel “ski boot” coil. Multiple pathologies were quickly and easily identified. Sample images with pathology clearly labeled and annotated are presented for reference 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

We are adhering to strict social distancing guidelines.

We are screening patients and requesting patients with fevers or flu symptoms, been in contact with someone suspected to have the coronavirus or anyone that has traveled to an affected region to please call and cancel/reschedule their appointment.
