Borderline inferior cerebellar ectopia present, the cerebellar tonsils demonstrate mild
inferior herniation, measuring 4 mm sagittal sequence, means?

Others call 3-5mm benign tonsillar ectopia, an incidental asymptomatic finding. Most consider greater than 5mm to be abnormal(Chiari 1 malformation). The measurement is from the skull base to the tonsil tip. ...Read more

Small tear: The labrum is rim of cartilage around the acetabulum which helps stabilize the femoral head in the hip joint socket. Labral tears can develop from chronic wear and tear or more acute injury; in younger patients they are sometimes related to abnormal morphology of the acetabulum or femoral neck, leading to femoroacetabular impingment (fai). ...Read more
