Q. Can you read my MRI and explain the reason for heel pain?



Hi doctor,

I am suffering from right heel pain for the last 11 months. All conservative measures exhausted. I had an MRI today. Can you read the MRI and provide a report?





Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

Please find my observations on the MRI scan of your right heel below.

  • There is increased thickness observed in the calcaneal insertion of the plantar fascia with increased signal intensity on T1 and TIRM sequence, which suggests plantar fasciitis.
  • Alignment of right ankle joint appears normal. Normal signal morphology of articular surfaces. Marrow signal of the bones is normal.
  • There is mild soft tissue edema around the talocalcaneal joint, especially posteriorly.
  • Tendons and ligaments show normal signal intensity. Neurovascular structures and muscles are normal in signal intensity.
  • Impression – Features are suggestive of plantar fasciitis and mild soft tissue edema around the talocalcaneal joint.
