i posted previously about my ankle sprain and have been waiting for an MRI. I got my results today but I don't see my specialist until the 20th and I was wondering if anyone had anything similar and could explain it in easier terms lol
FINDINGS: A small ankle effusion is seen. No osteochondral lesions or intraarticular bodies are noted.
Joint effusion is seen in the posterior subtalar joint. It contains scattered septations, but shows no osteochondral lesions or intraarticular bodies.
Tears of the anterior and posterior tibiofibular and syndesmotic ligaments are seen. In addition, there is subacute tear of the calcaneofibular ligament associated with adjacent soft tissue thickening and edema. There is a partial tear of the anterior talofibular ligament. This structure is irregular in contour and shows central intermediate signal change. Partial tear of the superficial band of the deltoid ligament is seen as indicated by hyperintensity and loss of fibre definition. The remaining ligamentous structures are intact.
The tendinous anatomy, with particular interest in the peroneal complex is unremarkable.
There is a corticated calcific lesion at the tip of the fibula. It measures 7 x 3mm in transverse dimension. It abuts a crescentic defect in the distal fibula which is well corticated. Moreover, there is a mild degree of subcortical hyperintense edema signal along the posterolateral margin of the distal fibula. The presentation may be the result of so-called os subfibulare or could indicate site of remote injury. The edema may be reactive in nature, but could reflect contusion in view of the recent injury.
Neurovascular structures are intact.
