Question Rationale: The fibula is partly superimposed by the tibia; the fibular (lateral) malleolus extends more inferiorly than the tibial (medial) malleolus.
Question Rationale: The tibia can be identified by its malleolus, which does not extend as far distally as the fibular malleolus.
Question Rationale: The ankle mortise includes the tibiotalar and talofibular joint spaces.
