Application of Computed Tomography Processed by Picture Archiving and Communication Systems in the Diagnosis of Acute Achilles Tendon Rupture

Figure 4

Male patient, 47 years old, was injured while playing badminton. (a) The rupture of Achilles tendon is close to near end and the distance to Achilles point is 7 cm. 3DVR outline image shows the broken ends of the tendon have thickened. (b) Ipsilateral MPR images showed distal tendon thickened and slightly bent due to tension disappearance. Contralateral 3DVR image (c) and MPR image (d) showed good tendon tension but thinner compared with the patients. It is easy to find the difference with affected side.
