MRI monitoring of tarsal navicular stress fracture healing--a case report.

Author information

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Kurume University School of Medicine, Japan.


Stress fractures of the tarsal navicular bone are rare injury and assessing its healing is difficult. Tenderness over the tarsal navicular on physical examination is the most reliable sign for assessing fracture healing. However, it is desirable to assess fracture healing with some imaging method. We used serial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to assess healing in a patient with a tarsal navicular stress fracture. MRI was useful for the assessment of fracture healing of tarsal navicular stress fracture in our case.
