    "There is peroneus brevis and longus tendinosis. The peroneus longus tendon demonstrates a
    full-thickness tear; the proximal tendon stump is at the lateral margin of the cuboid tunnel, located about
    40 mm proximal to its first metatarsal base insertion. There is a small partially torn distal tendon stump.
    The proximal tendon stump demonstrates mild to moderate grade intrasubstance partial tearing extending
    to the distal fibular level (coronal PDFS series 1001 images 13-30; coronal PDFS series 1101 images
    16-29).
    The peroneus brevis tendon demonstrates a longitudinal tear beginning 18 mm above the fibular tip,
    extending distally about 35 mm, with splaying and fraying"

    Purpose of the MRI was to rule out a Peroneus Longus Tendon rupture.. Is a full-thickness tear the same as a rupture? I can't see to find anything on the web with that terminology and peroneal tendons..
