MRI Report
« on: October 08, 2004, 03:46:59 AM »
I just got my MRI report back.  Among other things it says that I have a "prominent patellar tilt".  My concern is that my Dr. says I have no patellar tilt from looking at my X-Rays.  Which is correct? ???  I have seen my X-Rays and I can't see where my patella is tilted.  Which is more likely to be correct?  Thanks in advance for the advice!

bilateral dislocating kneecaps, since 6 yrs. old, shallow grooves and lateral tracking patellas,  PT not helping L knee, VMO advancement L knee scheduled 1/10/05

The physical examination is still the best test.......
