Salve, non riesco a capire il significato di 'talar dome', l'ho trovato in un contesto medico:
'Ankle dorsiflexion causing pain can be associated with an interior bony spur as well as an atypically shaped talar dome'...
Qualcuno può aiutarmi a capire per favore? :)

Grazie Mille!

    The ankle joint is composed of the bottom of the tibia (shin) bone and the top of the talus (ankle) bone.
    The top of the talus is dome-shaped.

    Talus dome = la cupola astragalica (talus=astragalus)
