ANATOMY OF THE FETLOCK

The anatomy of the fetlock, or metacarpophalangeal joint, is represented below in three planes: Sagittal, Coronal, and Axial. To navigate each plane scroll over the smaller scout image to the right of the main image. Once you have achieved your desired area of interest click on the scout image at that point to gain an indepth understanding of the anatomical structures present.

All images below are Spin (Proton) Density images with a TR= 1200, TE=26
Slices were made at 3.5 mm increments
