Animals - 4 horses. Procedure - MRI (1.5-Tes la magnet) of the tarsus was performed on the pelvic limbs of 4 clinically normal horses following euthanasia. After imaging, tarsocrural joint spaces and vasculature were injected with colored latex. Sagittal and transverse sections of the tarsi were plastinated to facilitate interpretation of MR images. Results - Relevant anatomic structures were identified and labeled on the plastinated tissue slices and corresponding MR images. Results indicated high correlations between MRI findings and those of plastinated sections. Conclusions and clinical relevance - The data obtained provided certain reference standards for normal anatomic structure sizes and positions in the equine tarsus. This information may aid future physiologic or clinical studies of this joint.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/47095||ISSN:||0002-9645||DOI:||10.2460/ajvr.67.5.756||Source:||American Journal of Veterinary Research [ISSN 0002-9645], v. 67, p. 756-761|
