Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Normal anatomy of the hind limb is not avaliable on this site. The majority of differences between the hind and forelimbs occur in the carpus/tarsal regions, and some of the anatomical geometry. The distal anatomy is approximately the same.

Review of normal MRI anatomy of the metacarpal and pastern regions.

The MRI evaluation revealed right hind proximal suspensory desmitis and a stress rteaction in the proximal plantar cortex of the third metatarsal bone, just axial to the lateral splint bone.
