The nurse that called me with the results couldn't give me more insight. She's a stand in for a different nurse, and she flat out said she didn't know what a bony protuberance was... like... how do you not know what that is 😂😂
Anyways. Any better insight would be awesome. I Don't go see the Ortho surgeon for another 2 weeks... *sigh*
Thank you 😊
1. No meniscal tear or acute ligamentous injury.
2. Cartilage fissuring and irregularity in the medial patellar facet. Mild
signal heterogeneity in the cartilage in the medial joint compartment. Findings
may represent chondromalacia and degenerative change or sequela of chondral
3. Small knee joint effusion.
4. Bony protuberance over the medial aspect of the proximal tibial metaphysis.
The findings may represent osteochondroma at this level, although no definite
cartilage cap identified. Other etiology such as a tug lesion could be a
consideration as well. There is no bone marrow edema or surrounding soft tissue
edema in this region.
Examination: MRI Knee Without Contrast Right
Date of Exam: 7/11/2017, 2:19 PM.
Comparison: Plain radiographs dated 6/22/2017.
Diagnosis/Reason for Exam: Pain in right knee; Pain in left knee; Other chronic

MRI of the knee without intravenous contrast. Multiplanar, multisequence MR
images were obtained.
Bones: Bone marrow signal is unremarkable. No acute fracture or osseous
contusion is seen. There is bony protuberance over the medial aspect of the
proximal tibial metaphysis. The findings could represent osteochondroma at this
level. No definite cartilage cap identified. No bone marrow edema identified in
this region. Other etiology such as a tug lesion could be a consideration as
Joint: The alignment is anatomic. There is a small knee joint effusion.
Soft tissues: Unremarkable. No Baker's cyst.
Cartilage: There is cartilage fissuring and irregularity in the medial patellar
facet. The findings suggest chondromalacia and degenerative change. Other
etiology such as sequela of chondral injury could be a consideration as well.
