The use of MRI in pre-operative evaluation of anterior talofibular ligament in chronic ankle instability.

Kanamoto T, Shiozaki Y, Tanaka Y, Yonetani Y, Horibe S - Bone Joint Res (2014)

Bottom Line: The imaging results were compared with the macroscopic results that are considered to be of a gold standard.ATFLs were abnormal in all 39 cases and classified as ten 'thickened' and 29 'thin or absent'.Cite this article Bone Joint Res 2014;3:241-5.
