MR arthrography has become an important tool for the assessment of a variety of ankle disorders. MR arthrography permits more sensitive imaging of suspected intra-articular pathology in cases in which conventional MR imaging is either insufficient or inadequate for diagnosis or treatment planning. The main indications for MR arthrography are the evaluation of ligamentous injuries, impingement syndromes, cartilage lesions, osteochondral lesions of the talus, loose bodies, and several synovial joint disorders. Indirect MR arthrography can be a useful adjunct to conventional MR imaging and may be preferable to direct MR arthrography in those cases in which an invasive procedure is contraindicated or image guidance is not available.
