The Calcaneal Crescent in Patients With and Without Plantar Fasciitis: An Ankle MRI Study : American Journal of Roentgenology : Ahead of Print (AJR)

An enlarged and trabeculae-rich calcaneal crescent may potentially indicate that abnormally increased forces are being exerted onto the Achilles tendon–calcaneal crescent–plantar fascia system.

OBJECTIVE. The bundled, crescent-shaped trabeculae within the calcaneal tuberosity—which we term and refer to here as the “calcaneal crescent”—may represent a structural adaption to the prevailing forces. Given Wolff law, we hypothesized that the calcaneal crescent would be more robust in pa...
