Computed tomography (CT) imaging of the foot demands excellent resolution for the delineation of complex fractures and joint alignment after trauma. The quality of current multislice volumetric acquisition results in exceptional multiplanar and 3-D reconstructions, precluding the requirement for an additional acquisition in a second plane. This pictoral essay depicts fractures of various bones of the foot, with reference to recent investigative studies demonstrating the value of CT in the evaluation of foot fractures.
