FootRad has gone live, but it will always be a work in progress!

PMP provides a location-based approach to pathology.

ACFAOM has a Podiatric Imaging Council (formerly the ACPR or American College of Podiatric Radiology); this section of the web site showcases interesting cases submitted by its Fellows and members. It will be available soon.

By The Book will supplement the textbook Foot and Ankle Radiology. This section will provide learning outcomes, additional image examples, and test questions to self-assess your learning experience. It will be updated frequently during this early phase of construction.

Podcasts are short presentations of imaging-related topics. It will be available soon.

The FootRad blog will be available soon.

The 2nd edition of the Foot and Ankle Radiology textbook is expected to be available in the summer of 2014 with a new publisher, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins!

The 1st edition has been declared "out of print" by Elsevier/Churchill Livingstone.


What is is a website devoted to diagnostic imaging of the foot and ankle. It is developed and managed by Robert A. Christman, DPM, EdM.

My goal is to build a site that will provide an educational environment for all things related to foot and ankle imaging. Any suggestions, including constructive criticism, are welcome!

Would you like to contribute to this web site?

If you have an interesting case that you would like to contribute, please submit all digital images (without any editing) including a brief discussion of the case to me via email. Your images will be watermarked with your name and acknowledged accordingly for your contribution.

Hard-copy radiographic films (originals preferred, which can be returned upon request; keep copies for yourself) can be sent to my attention at the following address:

What if the images don't show up correctly, or tabbed menus or links don't work?

These web pages have been tested on the following browser versions: Internet Explorer 8 (Windoze), Google Chrome (Windoze), Safari 5 (Mac), and Firefox 5 (Mac). First try using one of these browsers. There are known issues with Internet Explorer 6, so expect them if still using this older version. If you still are experiencing difficulty or, if you would like me to test these pages in another browser or browser version, let me know.

I painstakingly test the hyper-links, but I still might miss one here or there. Let me know if a link doesn't work and on which web page so that I can correct it.
