Enhanced CT images showing nutrient artery parameters in relation to the lesser metatarsals. a Distance from the dorsal plane parallel to a line between the most plantar point of the first metatarsal (point A) and fifth metatarsal (point B) to the point of entry of the nutrient artery into the lesser metatarsal (1) and the distance from a line between the most plantar point of the first metatarsal (point A) and fifth metatarsal (point B) to the point of entry of the nutrient artery into the lesser metatarsal (2) in the axial plane. b Distance from the distal epiphysis to the point of entry of the nutrient artery into the lesser metatarsal (3), the distance from the proximal epiphysis to the point of entry of the nutrient artery into the lesser metatarsal (4) in the coronal plane. The arrow head indicates the nutrient artery
