What is bone marrow edema around the superior calcaneous?

Unclear question

Bones
Bone marrow edema is not a clinical entity. If you have swelling in the foot or ankle, that could be due to many reasons, e.g., local injury, or abnormal veins; if both sides are affected, then it may be due heart failure, low blood protein, and side effect of some medications.

That means that the amount of edema (like swelling) in the vertebral bodies has decreased compared to your earlier study. This may indicate improvement or treatment effect, however, these types of changes on MRI don't always correlate with the patient's symptoms. Hope that helps!

Will bone marrow edema go away?

Depends

Open-uri20130827-9320-x2qnvd
Bone marrow edema is a term first used in 1988 to describe an abnormal signal pattern seen on the MRI of bone (usually of hip or knee) due to increased water content in the spongy bone portion called the marrow. Some doctors (orthopedics) may loosely use the term to describe resulting traumatic injury like a bruise to the bone in which case may resolve with healing in a few days.

Yes

Bone marrow is located in the interior of your bones. Bone marrow has blood vessels and lymphatic vessels. Under certain disease processes and trauma to the bone, the lymphatic or blood vessels get damaged, they leak out fluid and cause edema.

See below:

Bones
It generally means injury to or an infective lesion in the coccyx. It is seen on MRI. If you have had a fall onto butt, or involved in an accident, with pain in the tailbone, would indicate a fracture of the coccyx. Otherwise an infection can produce similar picture, but symptoms would include pain, fever, tenderness locally.
