MRI? What does it all mean??
« on: August 23, 2011, 02:14:33 AM »
Good day all,

I am new and was wondering if someone could help me understand this MRI result.

It states that there is a prominent area of altered signal involving the lateral femoral condyle anteriorly that measures approximently 2.5cm, there is a slightly less prominent findings involving the lateral femoral condyle somewhat inferiorly and posteriorly.

There is mild increased signal at the insertion of the patellar tendon upon the anterior tibial tuberosity and there may be some mild increased signal within the tendon adjacent to its insertion.

The impression:
There are a prominent osteochondral lesions involving the lateral femoral condyle.

Could someone tell me in "regular" terms what the heck is going on??? I was told that it appears that the patella is quite high and not in the correct position, with arthritis under the patella.


Any response would be great.
