Could one of the doctor's please tell me if they think some evidence of PF should show up on an MRI?

I'm not a doc, but you might find these abstracts helpful. Seems like it's around 90%.

Thank you. I am very frustrated by the symptoms but told by a doctor considerd to be GOD in the Southeast I could not have PF because it did not show on the MRI.

You can have plantar fasciitis that doesn't show up on the MRI An ultrasound is a better modality to evaluate and diagnosis tendon pathology and or fasciitis

Could a person have chronic pain of the arch/heel of the foot with no medical cause ? My foot is 'kind of flat' per the orthpeadic doctors I saw.
