There is a diffuse soft tissue enlargement and ankle joint effusion observed on the lateral radiograph. No fractures or bone lesions are observed.
Lateral radiograph demonstrates a nice example of an ankle joint effusion within the anterior recess, as well as a less well defined portion of the effusion is also seen within the posterior recess.
