In brief: Broken Foot

Best tests start with a thorough physical examination.
.. Foot xrays are very helpful in defining a discrete fracture or dislocation. Sometimes, other tests are needed and helpful for more difficult fractures.

In brief: X-ray

An x-ray will usually tell if your foot is broken.
If not you may need an MRI or ct scan.
