LATERAL ANKLE

The anatomy and pathologies of the ankle and foot are complex, even for experienced ultrasound practitioners. You will see many patients who roll their ankles, and some of these injuries if not diagnosed (in particular the underappreciated and underdiagnosed midfoot injuries) can have a detrimental impact on their quality of life including chronic pain, ankle instability and irreversible joint damage.  

 

The AIU and Chong MSK Radiology Services lateral ankle video tutorial series provides you with a time efficient, logical and methodical progression of assessing lateral ankle and midfoot inversion injuries including an 11 point protocol.

Extend your knowledge beyond scanning the basic lateral ankle ligaments.

The 11 point protocol covers acquisition of the below listed ligaments and tendons, as well as interpretation of the images through case based learning and discussion.

 

  • Ankle Mortise and joint capsule

  • Talonavicular ligament/joint

  • Anterior Talofibular Ligament (ATFL) – Including stressing techniques

  • Anterior Tibiofibular Ligament (AITFL)  – Including stressing techniques

  • Calcaneofibular Ligament (CFL)  – Including stressing techniques

  • Peroneal tendons and assessment of the Retinaculum

  • Calcaneocuboid joint

  • Bifurcate ligament 

  • Calcaneal attachment of Extensor Digitorum Brevis

  • Sinus Tarsi

  • Deltoid examination in relation to inversion injury

 

These videos will help lay the foundation of scanning skills for those who wish to extend their knowledge beyond just scanning the basic lateral ankle ligaments.

 

Video training consistently ranks as an effective method for bridging knowledge gaps.
