This chapter discusses imaging of the foot and ankle in rheumatological disease, including the advantages and disadvantages of specific techniques by disease. Conventional radiology remains the mainstay for radiological investigation, and a systematic approach to viewing the plain film radiographs is covered. Findings by imaging technique and disease are described. Computerized tomography, nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound are all analysed.
