Doctors - Confusing MRI InterpretationsPosted by Darlene on 8/22/04 at 09:26 (158531)
First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to help up all on this board. Thank you!!!
My MRI report said that I have an enlarged accessory muscle in my tarsal tunnel in the plantaris distribution.
A second radiologist took a look at it and said that I have an accessory soleus muscle which is enlarged, but not in the tarsal tunnel.
I do have altered sensations on my foot - numb great toe, heel pain, ball of foot pain (also morton's neuroma - in 2nd and 3rd webspaces).
I'm wondering what you make of all this? I don't want to rush into surgery, but I'm not very mobile right now.

You need to have the radiologists work this one out. An accessory soleus muscle is a condition I have seen and read about in the literature, and the accessory muscle in the 'plantaris distribution' is not a condition I've seen. The plantaris muscle is a muscle that runs parallel to the Achilles complex. You need to speak with the radiologists and your doctor.
