A 28-year-old male asked:
can wearing compression socks for months affect the results of a mri from knee to ankle, i.e., miss something because muscles, etc., were compressed?

Probably not: Depending on the reason for the MRI, the use of compression garments should not significantly affect the images. One exception is generalized edema/swelling, which may be diminished by use of compression stockings.
