Plantar Fascia Calcification: Foot
This lateral right foot x-ray from a 61 year-old woman with psoriatic arthritis and intermittent heel pain demonstrates a small calcaneal spur and soft-tissue calcification separate from the spur. In patients with chronic heel pain, calcifications may not be apparent by radiograph but may be detected by MR imaging. These radiographic findings are distinct from the periostitis of psoriatic arthritis, which may occur in the same location.
