Background: The ankle joint is one of the most frequently injured joints in the body. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an emerging modality which is being used routinely for evaluation and diagnosis of pathologies of the ankle joint and foot as it can demonstrate pathologies before they become evident on other imaging modalities. Materials and Methods: We carried out a descriptive study on fifty patients over a period of 2 years to evaluate role of MRI in diagnosing various pathologies of the ankle joint and foot as demonstrated by many illustrative cases in this article. Conclusion: MRI must be the primary imaging modality of choice for optimal detection of pathologies of the tendons, ligaments, and other soft-tissue structures of the ankle joint complex and the foot.
