- ULUgeskr Laeger 2010 Nov 29; 172(48):3325-9
- CONCLUSIONS: AT is a common complaint in rheumatology clinics. US alone cannot diagnose AT, but it serves as a supplement to clinical investigation. US can assist in achieving more precise diagnoses. Future studies must elucidate if the various diagnoses are associated with different prognoses and treatments.

The hindfoot is the part of the foot which is proximal to the midtarsal joint. The obvious causes of pain are not considered (post-traumatic etiologies, sprains and fractures but also cutaneous lesions). The main etiologies on the subject are successively exposed by following the localization of the pain. Diffuse pains (ankle arthritis tarsal osteoarthritis, algodystrophy, calcaneo-navicular synostosis but also bone diseases like stress fractures, Paget disease or tumors). Plantar talalgia (Sever's disease, plantar fasciitis and entrapment neuropathies such as (esions of the medial calcaneal nerve, of the first branch of the plantar lateral nerve, medial plantar nerve and lateral plantar nerve). Posterior pains: calcaneal tendinopathy including peritendinitis, tendinosis, retro-calcaneal bursitis and pathology of the postero-lateral talar tuberosity. Medial pains: tendinopathies of the posterior tibial tendon and tendinopathy of the flexor hallucis longus tendon and tarsal tunnel syndrome. Lateral pains: fibularis tendinopathies including split lesions of the fibularis brevis tendon, displacement of the fibularis iongus tendon, sinus tarsi syndrome and finally thickenings of capsules and ligaments and ossifications localized under the tibial malleoli. Anterior pains: antero-inferior tibio-fibular ligament, anterior tibial tendinopathy and anterior impingment syndrome.
- Assessment of peritrochanteric high T2 signal depending on the age and gender of the patients. [Journal Article]
- EJEur J Radiol 2010; 75(1):64-6
- CONCLUSIONS: Bilateral peritrochanteric high T2 signal may be a part of the degeneration process and we suggest that it may not be necessarily reported if the clinical findings do not support greater trochanteric pain syndrome.
- MR imaging features of foot involvement in patients with psoriasis. [Journal Article]
- EJEur J Radiol 2008; 67(3):521-5
- CONCLUSIONS: Our data showed that the incidence of foot involvement was very high in asymptomatic patients with psoriasis on MR imaging. Further MR studies are needed to confirm these data. We conclude that MR imaging may be of importance especially in early diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory changes in the foot.
- [Limits of palmar locking-plate osteosynthesis of unstable distal radius fractures]. [Journal Article]
- HMHandchir Mikrochir Plast Chir 2007; 39(1):34-41
- CONCLUSIONS: Favourable indications for palmar locking plate osteosynthesis are A2, A3, C1 and C2 fractures with big distal fracture fragments. In these cases, additional bone grafting is not needed. In very distal fractures, multidirectional plate-systems are advantageous. Multifragmental C3 fractures show a high complication rate. Additional bone grafting for the metaphyseal defect should be considered.
- MRI and US of gluteal tendinopathy in greater trochanteric pain syndrome. [Journal Article]

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome is commonly due to gluteus minimus or medius injury rather than trochanteric bursitis. Gluteal tendinopathy most frequently occurs in late-middle aged females. In this pictorial review the pertinent MRI and US anatomy of the gluteal tendon insertions on the greater trochanter and the adjacent bursae are reviewed. The direct (peritendinitis, tendinosis, partial and complete tear) and indirect (bursal fluid, bony changes and fatty atrophy) MRI signs of gluteal tendon injury are illustrated. The key sonographic findings of gluteal tendinopathy are also discussed.
- [Extended field-of-view sonography in Achilles tendon disease: a comparison with MR imaging]. [Journal Article]
- ROFORofo 2004; 176(5):704-8
- CONCLUSIONS: The combination of EFOVS and grayscale sonography has the potential to challenge MRI as the preferred imaging method in diagnosing symptomatic Achilles tendon disease, especially with respect to saving time and cost and the absence of any contraindications.

Chronic achillodynia are mostly due to ether an injury of the tendon itself (tendinosis) or to an inflammatory process occurring inside the surrounding tissues (bursitis or peritendinitis); these lesions are often seen simultaneously. The Achilles tendon plays an important role during gate (mainly during the propulsion phase), which explains its high incidence in runners, particularly those who are used to train and compete on steep slopes. The diagnosis of the condition is essentially based on medical history and examination: search for trigger factors and events, precise location of the complaints; management includes treatment of the cause, not only the consequences (pain, tissue injuries).
- MRI features of intersection syndrome of the forearm. [Journal Article]
- AAAJR Am J Roentgenol 2003; 181(5):1245-9
- CONCLUSIONS: Intersection syndrome is an overuse disorder of the dorsal distal forearm, presenting with particular symptoms and signs that may be clinically misdiagnosed. MRI can perform an important role in establishing the diagnosis. Peritendinous edema (peritendinitis) around the first and second extensor compartment tendons, extending proximally from the crossover point, is the most characteristic finding that should suggest a diagnosis of intersection syndrome. Chronic cases may be subtle and not show substantial MRI findings likely reflecting the development of a stenosing tenosynovitis.
