Quantifying the Dimensions of Achilles Tendon Insertional Area Using Ultrasound Imaging A Validity and Reliability Study

SUMMARY Background. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the reliability and validity of using US imaging for measuring Achilles tendon insertion area to the calcaneus. Methods. Sixteen cadaveric tendons were used to compare the agreement between Achilles tendon insertion length measurements from US images with actual measurements after dissection. In addition, test-retest reliability … Continued
