Any Thoughts on this MRI

Post by Mags0131 » Tue Mar 12, 2013 3:51 pm

Can someone please tell me what the following means, this was an MRI of Right Knee W/O Contrast

1.) 6mm wide x 4 mm AP region of partial thickness cartilage loss and fissuring in the central portion of the medial femoral condyle

2.) Patella Baja with mild inflammatory changes in the superior aspect of Hoffa's fat pad and scarring of the deep margin

3.) Trace joint effusion and 9mm long region of thickened synovium in the anterolateral joint line. A loose body is a less likely diagnostic consideration

4.) Mild ossesous spurring is seen at the origin of the medial collateral ligament

5.) Mild perigraftt fibrosis

6.) Mild thinning of the periphery of the medial tibial plateau cartilage

7.) Mild scarring of the patellar tendon

Any help is appreciated!

First, I am not a medical doctor, so my impression is non-professional. You should consult your medical doctor for clarification and medical advice. I offer the following as non-professional impression of the data presented. (See your doctor!)

Probable Degenerative knee.
