Because a stress fracture is rare and easily missed on an x-ray, it might go undetected. If a patient presents with an activity related injury to the midfoot and x-rays are negative, a computed tomography scan can be helpful in diagnosing a cuboid stress fracture. Also, computed tomography scans graphically show the fracture location and size, in addition to tracking progressive bone changes during the healing process.
