Objective:To investigate the MRI expressions of Achilles tendon tear and diagnostic value of low fieldMRI. Methods: The low field MRI expressions of Achilles tendon tear of 36 cases were retrospectively analyzed, and all the 36 patients had the history of acute ankle injury. Results: Low field MRI diagnosed 10 cases of Achilles' s tendon complete tear and 26 cases partial tear. The MRI expressions of Achilles tendon tear were thickening or distortion of Achilles' s tendon, disruption or partial disruption of tendon and abnormal signals in tendon; T1 WI, T2 WI and FS T2 WI showed mixed or limited high signals. Conclusions: Low field MRI can display the location, degree of Achilles tendon tear clearly; so it has guidance value for treatment and prognosis of Achilles tendon tear.
