MR angio of anterior and posterior tibial arteries

Popliteal artery terminates below the knee joint by bifurcating into anterior and posterior tibial arteries which supply the leg. Anterior tibial artery supplies the anterior compartment of the leg and the dorsal surface of the foot while the posterior tibial artery supplies the posterior compartment of the leg and the plantar surface of the foot. Anterior tibial artery becomes the dorsalis pedis artery when it crosses the ankle joint.
