abstract

  • Painful stump neuromas in the postamputation patient are difficult to diagnose and treat. We report a case in which magnetic resonance allowed precise preoperative diagnosis and localization of such a lesion. Magnetic resonance, with its ability for long axis imaging in the extremity, is ideally suited for the workup of stump neuromas.
