Imaging findings on high-resolution ultrasound may help to find out or differentiate any soft tissue abnormalities from morton's neuroma. In 2000, a study was conducted in which ultrasound done on patients with morton's neuroma demonstrated to have 100% sensitivity, 83.3% specificity and 96.7% accuracy in detecting the location of morton's neuroma. Symptomatic morton's neuroma is at least 5 mm in diameter on sonogram. A presumed plantar digital nerve identified in continuity with the mass on ultrasound leads to an improved diagnostic confidence of morton's neuroma.
