In Greek mythology, Achilles was a Greek hero of the Trojan War, the central character and greatest warrior of Homer's Iliad which takes for its theme the Wrath of Achilles.Later legends state that Achilles was invulnerable on all of his body except for his heel. These legends state that Achilles was killed in battle by an arrow to the heel, and so an "Achilles' heel" or Achilles' tendon has come to mean a person's principal weakness.
Axial and saggital MRI of the ankle show an abnormal contour and altered signal intensity involving the tendoachilles, On the T2 and fat suppressed image is an area of high signal in the tendon suggesting tear. Clinical signs for complete tear are Thomson's test and inability to tiptoe.

Here are some images of a polytrauma patient referred to us for a CT scan interpretation. One look at the images make you feel scared, just look at the way Ryles tube is coiling in the cranial cavity. probably he had a cribiform plate fracure through which the tube got accidentally pushed into the cranial cavity. We present the Scout film and CT sections. 35 cases of intracranial nasogastric tube insertion have been reported in the international literature. A complex craniofacial fracture is the most common predisposing factor.
