A 59-year-old male patient, suffering from consistent pain in the right ankle, presented for checkup. He had fallen onto rocks while walking on the beach. Physical examination revealed local swelling and abrasions. Conventional X-ray showed no signs of fracture in the right foot and ankle. Dual Energy CT (DECT) was performed for further evaluation.
