Shoulderpain ~2 yrs. Mri-mild tendinosis of supraspinatus tendon, 2 mm interstital tear, mild subacr-subdelt bursitis, trace glenohumoral joint effusion?

I had multiplanar mri&impresion:chondromalacia of medial trochlear cartilage.Moderate popliteal cyst with mild joint effusion.Pes anserine bursitis, prepatellar&intrapat bursitis?

I had multiplanar mri&impresion:chondromalacia of medial trochlear cartilage.Moderate popliteal cyst with mild joint effusion.Pes anserine bursitis, prepatellar&intrapat bursitis?

Several issues: Chondromalacia means you have abnormal cartilage in the inside part of your knee where the kneecap (patella) sits. Everything else means you have fluid and/or inflammation in various places around your knee. A bursa is a sac that usually only has a little bit of fluid in it but can get inflamed and be painful. Popliteal cyst = baker cyst, which is accumulation of fluid in the back of the knee. ...Read more

Mri on neck shows increased uptake with c5-6 disc space and rt sided c3-4 facet joint discogenic and facet degeneration. T3-4 facet joint uptake? Help

A grain of salt...: There is not a very good correlation between MRI findings and symptoms. 'Uptake' suggests the use of contrast that highlights inflammation. I suggest you consult with a psiatrist or practicing osteopath experienced in both MRI interpretation and physical medicine. ...Read more

Would a torn sacroiliac ligament show up on an mri?

Would a torn sacroiliac ligament show up on an mri?

Second opinion: Is a good idea. An MRI can be submitted to http://conciergeradiologist.Com in the next few weeks for reevaluation. One picture is not enough - the whole study will need to be sent, but fortunately that's easy. This would be the best way to answer your question, since the extent of an si joint injury can range from subtle to blatant depending on how it was injured in the first place. ...Read more

Whats bilateral lumbar facet injection?

Whats bilateral lumbar facet injection?

For Back Pain: Lumbar facet injections are meant to be diagnostic and not therapeutic to see if the facets are the cause of back pain. They should always be done under fluoroscopic guidance and pain always should be recorded on a scale for 6 hours following the procedure. If greater than 50% relief for at least six hours this proves facet mediated pain and a rhizotomy may be indicated for longer lasting relief. ...Read more

Mri comes back with grade II to III chondromalacia patella , knee joint effusion with ganglion, longitudinal partial tear.Mcland lcl strain. ?

Conservative Rx: Depends upon your primary complaint and whether there was a mechanism of injury. Chondromalacia(i.e.Cartilage wear=arthritis) is common and can cause swelling and pain. Collateral ligament strains/partial tears (mcl+lcl) should be managed well conservatively. Recommend seeing a pt for motion, strengthening, edema control. Am a fan of a stationary bike as well (nonimpact knee motion+strengthening). ...Read more
