Figure 13: (A,B): Tuberculous osteomyelitis of the second metatarsal bone of the left foot. Sagittal, fat-suppressed, T2W MRI (A) shows bone marrow edema, adjacent tenosynovitis (arrow) of the extensor tendon and increased signal within the adjacent soft tissues on the plantar and dorsal aspects of the foot. Coronal, contrast-enhanced, fat-suppressed, T1W MRI (B) shows marked enhancement of the soft tissue involvement with central necrosis and abscess formation on the dorsal aspect of the second metatarsal bone (arrow). Note the hazy contour of the dorsal cortex of the diaphysis
