Weightbearing MRI for plantar fasciitis

by admin on April 1, 2010

In a recent edition of Radiological Medicine there is a new study that investigated the use of a weightbearing MRI to assess those with plantar fasciitis . They were able to report that the changes in the MRI signal that was associated with plantar fasciitis when compared by blinded examiners in those without plantar fasciitis. Unlike the usual ultrasound finding, the thickness of the plantar fascia was reduced due to stretching in the weightbearing position compared to the supine position.
