In brief: Pathological bone
Fractures that occur without an injury are called pathologic fractures and are related to some bone disease such as the infection you mention.

In brief: Shows inflamation
Inflamation and fractures can be seen on an mri.
Only a culture will let you know if it is an actual infection / osteomyelitis.

In brief: MRI's don't know!
Mri stands for magnetic resonance imagery.
Mri works by using a large magnetic force to excite hydrogen molecules. When the molecules.
