Specifically, retroreflective markers were placed on the following locations to define the ankle joint: lateral and medial epicondyles of the knees, shank (for tracking markers), lateral and medial malleoli of the ankles, first and fifth metatarsal heads, second metatarsal heads, and calcaneous (Figure 3b).
Calcaneous quantitative ultrasound measurements predicts vertebral fractures in idiopathic male osteoporosis.
In our case, we detected cartilaginous synchondrosis between OAS and calcaneous as like in between talus and os trigonum.
The soleus muscle thickness (MT) was measured with a real-time B-mode ultrasonography using a linear array 11-MHz ultra-sound probe (Logiq Book XP, General Electric[TM], USA) positioned perpendicularly to the calcaneous tendon 2 cm below the medial and lateral gastrocnemius bellies.
The aim of this study was to examine whether QUS stiffness index measured at the calcaneous area that can reflect the status of bone at the area most likely to endure fractures (spine and neck of femur), or whether a combined assessment of QUS and BMD should be used to assess bone loss at different areas.
A male, 68 years old, was referred from Camaragibe--PE with a complaint of hypoesthesia in the calcaneous regions for around 2 years, associated with erythematous skin lesions.
Inversion of the calcaneous produces external rotation of the tibia while the talus glides posterolaterally over the calcaneus.
Prior to measurement, the posterior center of the calcaneous of both feet of each participant was marked with a pen.
Subjects had reflective markers placed bilaterally on their upper body (acromion process, lateral epicondyle, wrist, and third metacarpal), trunk (cervical 7, thoracic 6, anterior and posterior superior iliac spines, and sacrum), and lower body (trochanter, lateral surface of midthigh, lateral epicondyle of the knee, lateral surface of midshank, lateral malleolus, calcaneous, and second metatarsal head).
Estimation of adult stature from the calcaneous and talus.
Tendon rupture may also be due to avulsion of tendon from the calcaneous or trauma to some part of the musculotendinous unit (Piermattei, 2006).
