MRI Questions???
« on: March 12, 2008, 11:32:39 PM »

I was just wondering if someone could help me interpret my MRI results.  Not even sure it is appropriate to ask.  I am not scheuled to see my OS until next Thursday.

The observable marrow spaces demonstrate evidence of right marrow reconversion within the diaphyses of the femur, tibia,and fibula.  No marrow edema is identified.  A small amount of fluid is present within the knee joint space.  There is also mild edema within Hoffa fat pad and a small amount of fluid within the pes anserinus bursa.  Mild focal prepatellar soft tissue is seen.

The cruciate and collateral ligaments, extensor mechanism and menisci are intact, however a note is made of a discoid lateral meniscus.  Mild fraying and fissuring of the articular cartilage is seen, being most pronounced at the patellar cartilage.  There is a slight lateral subluxation of the patella.  The observable musculature appears normal in bulk and signal.  Small marginal osteophytes are seenn of the femur.

1. Mild osteoarthritis with mild chondromalacia of patella and lateral subluxation of the patella.  this latter finding may refrect a lateral patellar tracking abnormality.  Please correlate clinically.
2.  Discoid lateral meniscuc.  No meniscal tear seen.
3.  Small effusion.
4. Mild pes anserinus bursitis.

I never have had any problem with my knee until this last weekend.  I was bowling and when I released my ball I had this shocking pain in my knee.  I could not finish my game.  I have never felt any discomfort like this before.  I could barely walk, just kind of dragged my leg.

Any help would be great.
