Mild Focal Uptake At Right Knee Proximal Tibia
Left knee medial compartment joint replacement hardware with abnormal
uptake of tracer in the medial left femoral condyle proximal to the prosthesis.
Varies : It varies in part on the type of scan you underwent and the timing of when your knee replace my was done as well. A standard bone scan will light up with increased bone activity and would be concerning for loosening, infection, or fracture. A white blood labeled scan that lights up whilst be concerning for infection. I would discuss with your surgeon. ...Read more
Mri- mild subacromial subdeltoid bursitis with slight hypertrophic changes at the inferior distal clavicle causing mild mass effect w/o injury. Pt??
What is mild lateral excursion to the patella with focal subchrondral bone marrow along the median ridge inferior patella? overlying chondromalacia
Weak VMO-LrgQ angle: The VMO ->the medial part of quadriceps muscle, when relatively stronger, it can help your patella (knee cap) track in the middle of its groove. As you grow, hips get wider and that increases the Q angle (look it up). Strengthen your VMO with Quad Sets. Put a Coffee can under your knee straighten- hold. Toes in X20, toes strait X10, Toes out X10. VMO works w/ toes in. incr. to 100/50/50. Ice. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

ORIF or not? X-ray: oblique fracture in distal fibula to outer corner of mortise joint w less than 3 mm displacement no effusion mortise seems intact
Depends: If it is really an isolated fibula fracture, they usually do not need surgery. Sometimes, however, the fibula fracture will be associated wth a complete tear of the deltoid ligament on the inside of the ankle. In that case, the talus will sometimes start to drift laterally and surgery is required to prevent post traumatic arthritis and instability in the ankle. Follow up with orthopedic surgeon ...Read more
Subcutaneous oedema at lateral & medial in left ankle. Fluid in posterior & subtalar joint with fluid anterolaterally possibly ganglionic. Please help?
Yes : You are probably describing an MRI report and would do well to follow up with your physician to discuss. The medial and lateral edema described refers to swelling that is present under the skin. This could represent an injury such as an ankle sprain, or could be inflammatory. A ganglion is a flyid filled cyst that can cause local irritation and pain, not uncommonly found in the foot and hand. ...Read more

Runner. Have bone marrow edema in left superior ramus&acetabular column+stabbing posterior hip. Is this all consistent w dysplasia?
Not necessarily: Hip dysplasia is diagnosed by certain radiographic parameters on an ap radiograph of the pelvis. You could potentially have acetabular or proximal femoral dysplasia, but it's hard to tell if your symptoms correlate with any type of dysplasia. ...Read more
What does altered marrow signal in distal femur and proximal tibia accompanied with hemosiderin deposition & thickened synovium in MRI left knee mean?
Hemosiderin MRI: This may be consistent with a condition of the knee called pigmented villodular synovitis. This is caused by inflammation of the lining of the knee joint (synovium) and resulting deposit of breakdown of blood products. The cause is largely unknown. The diagnosis of pigmented villonodular synovitis is confirmed by biopsy, and the treatment of choice is synovectomy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

"comminuted fracture is seen within right medial cuniform bone with sliglhty displaced cortical bony fragment laterally
do u think cast will heel up?
Probably: Fortunately the cuneiforms are pretty rigid with alot of soft tissue/capsular attachment that help form the midfoot. A cast should help to allow things to heal and ossify. This may predispose you to some midfoot pain/arthritis as you get older. A good arch support may help longterm. I'd let your orthopod determine if cast or boot or postop shoe is appropriate w/o seeing films. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
