Calcaneum is an important bone in the foot and ankle system. It is involved in the weight bearing axis and also forms the arches of the foot. Any fracture of calcaneus needs to be treated. Operating on a fractured calcaneus is technically demanding and requires thorough knowledge of foot and ankle radiography. This helps in accurate reduction of the fracture and improves patient outcomes. To analyze an image of calcaneus, one must have knowledge about the anatomy and the angular measurements of the calcaneus. These structures are then visualized on radiographic images. Lateral view of foot, Harris axial view, Broden's view, Saltzman's view and the Captain's view are some of the most frequently performed radiographs intraoperatively.
