Is ultrasound superior to MRI for diagnosing Morton's neuroma?


In a paper by Xu et al.(Z. Xu., X. Duan., X. Yu., H. Wang., X. Dong.& Z. Xiang. The accuracy of ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging for the diagnosis of Morton's neuroma: a systematic review Clinical Radiology. 2015, April)), the literature was reviewed in order to establish whether ultrasound or MRI may be better as a form of diagnosis for Morton's neuroma. The review suggested that ultrasound can provide better accuracy and this is certainly The London Podiatry Centre's experience. Not only is this a real-time dynamic test which allows for manipulation of soft tissues but we also consistently find this investigation to be superior to MRI.
