Figure 3.

Sagittal STIR MR image of a 25-year-old male shows patchy edema signal within the body of the talus (long arrow), which extends to the subchondral region of the talar dome (short arrow). This same edema pattern was observed in nine of the twelve ankles and may be related to chronic repetitive stress.
