This is the seventh and last in a series of studies related to procedure-oriented joint anatomy. This article reviews the anatomy of the foot and its relationship to procedures in the clinical setting with or without ultrasound guidance. Anatomically correct axial schematics allow injections to be envisioned relative to clinically important anatomy for common forefoot procedures. Cross-sectional schematics for the ankle were drawn as they appear in imaging projections. The levels and planes of cross section were selected to highlight important anatomic landmarks for injection. It is hoped that these schematics allow for safer and more accurate needle procedures in the foot area.
