Ultrasound Evaluation of the Lateral Ankle with Demonstration of Common Pathology

Sarah Allred, DMS, RMSK, Hamilton Health Sciences

Sarah is a musculoskeletal sonographer for Hamilton General Hospital and has more than 10 years of specialized experience in the field. This presentation will cover one of the most injured joints in the body: the ankle. Sarah’s particular focus will be on the lateral aspect of the ankle as she reviews the anatomy and common anatomical variants of the lateral ankle which are necessary to provide an ankle ultrasound. Her presentation will continue with a discussion of how ankle injuries and abnormalities can be better assessed, and how the pathological processes can be more accurately documented.
