Re: Broken first metatarsal

Without seeing your foot or x-rays I can't say for sure. It is not generally customary todo a MRI of a simple fracture. Certainly the information is useful if a diagnosis is not clear and more studies are indicated.

The pop and snap you hear may be related to tendons that might be irritated. For that, a MRI is very useful.

Short answer, if you get a copy of your records and get another opinion by someone who can evaluate the entire picture, possibly a MRI is indicated.
