Evaluation of calf muscle size and structure after an Achilles tendon rupture
The objective of this study is to compare to different methods of measuring the size of calf muscles: magnetic resonance (MRI) and ultrasound imaging. Participant will undergo a MRI scan (about 1 hour) and an ultrasound imaging session (about 1 hour). Images obtained from patients with Achilles tendon rupture will also be used to determine the feasibility of quantifying damage to the soleus muscle.
