Probably not: a great idea to interpret an MRI without any training based on a 400 word or less response. Compartment syndrome is a clinical diagnosis, but supportive MRI findings would include edema (bright on T2W) involving the musculature and deep soft tissues. Best to speak with your doctor about the results.
