This fifth video shows a case in which getting a clear image of the fascia is particularly challenging, in spite of clear fasciitis. This difficulty can sometimes arise in the case of a patient having irregular (even if minute) flat spots along the calcaneus. Some doctors report this to occur in 1 out of 5 patients. The flat spots throw back the ultrasound signal in such a way as to muddy the image, rather than providing a consistent (even) reflective surface. It’s just one of those things.
