First place

Dr. Wing Tom

 

Dr. Tom had a 35 year old male who came in after tripping over a ball.  Patient had tenderness over his left achilles and Dr. Tom got the following images of the achilles, showing a complete tendon rupture.  Patient was placed in a splint by podiatry and scheduled for surgery that week.  You can see the patient plantarflex with the tendon moving into the ruptured area. Great images that can convince your consultants right away of the diagnosis.
