Mri scan knee effusion

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan knee effusion


Avatar m tn my name is wishyiar// mri scan for left knee says /bony contusion at medial condyle due to associated degenerative changes anterior joint effusion is noted grade 2 posterior horn degenerative changes at medial meniscus noted with normal meniscus apart from anterior horn meniscal syst.
Avatar m tn I went straight to my GP and was booked in for a MRI scan. The results came back. There is an oblique degenerative tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus. 15.4x7.3mm intercondylar notch cyst abutting the posterior margin of the root of the PCL. Moderate knee joint effusion. Normal retropatellar cartilage. Noosteochondral Injury. Will I need surgery or will it heel on its own? Help please.
Avatar f tn Back at the beginning of december i injured my knee. I had been about to kneel down when my leg gave out and i landed on my knee with it bent in a very awkward way. I had swelling and great amounts of pain and dull ache and after seeing a doctor in A&E was booked for an mri scan and put into a lockable brace which i wore for around 6 weeks as he was sure i'd suffered mcl injury. The scan showed no cartilage damage and no real mcl damage which was suspected.
Avatar f tn No infections. I had a recent CT scan because they said I could not have an MRI. Everything is in place with no other problems except some noticeable effusion. My calf is stiff and also painful. It hurts to rotate my ankle. I have done extensive physical therapy, ice, rest, tyleon, IB, massage and massage prescription lotion with medication to no avail. I cry in private cause everyone thinks I am faking. No one will prescribe pain meds even to just get me to the doctor.
Avatar n tn What is hip joint effusion...found on MRI. And, what do they do for it? Explains pain in that area.
Avatar f tn Old Knee injury has led to 4 Arthroscopes over the years.
2143641 tn?1396678143 Actually I would love to see a MRI of your knee, but without it - I will give you two possibilities. First, a meniscal tear and second, a ACL injury. Both can be detected with a MRI (although your doctor will probably get regular x-rays first - protocol). Hope this helps, besides rest keep it iced also. Best of luck, jd1963!
Avatar f tn I don't fully understand the MRI results for my knee and what I need to be prepared for in the future, in terms of surgery etc... I am in major pain and have had various problems over the years with this knee. I am what I consider to still be relatively young - 48. Can anyone help me/explain to me in layman terms what the following means???? Please?: Large complex tear of the medial meniscus. Intrasubstance degeneration versus nondisplaced horizontial tear of the lateral meniscus.
Avatar n tn I would like some help in understanding the results of an MRI on my right knee and in understanding courses of treatment - small longitudinal vertical tear of the periphery/red zone of the medial meniscus posterior horn - Ill defined signal in the lateral meniscus anterior -cluster of subchondral cysts with bone marrow edema -intermediate grade articular cartilage loss -knee joint effusion Thank you.
Avatar f tn Fell at work and DR said nothing is wrong with my knee. My results from MRI are: No Occult Fracture or Bone Contusion, Mild Subchondral Degerative Bony Changes to the Femoral Condyles Anteriorly, Moderate Knee Joint Effusion, Probable Myxoid Degeneration to the Posterior Body Portion of the Medial Meniscus without Meniscal Tear, Correlated Appearance to the Patellar Tendon without Acute Tear. Focal Degenerative Tendinosis Noted at the Proximal Portion of the Patellar Tendon.
Avatar m tn However, since big tears usually do not repair fully, partial or complete removal of meniscus (meniscectomy) is performed. If conservative treatment to reduce joint effusion does not help, you may need knee replacement. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn Hi. I am a 33 year old very active male and I recently had an MRI on my right knee and was hoping someone could help me in understanding the results.. I have had pain for a few years but it seems to have gotten worse over the last year I have a follow up appointment on the 15th with Ortho and I just want to be intelligent about my Knee (i.e. how bad is this?) issue before I go in. My results are below, any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar m tn I'm 22 years man , I have a trauma in left knee and I do MRI and report say that 1) minimal synovial effusion 2) abnormal linear high S.I is seen at the posterior horn of medial meniscus, reaching the articular margin ... posterior tear What is the treatment ?
Avatar f tn No acute fracture or joint dislocation is identified involving the left knee. Bones of the left knee do appear somewhat under mineralized relative to the right knee. Areas of sclerosis within the lateral tibial plateau and lateral femoral condyle are demonstrated, as well as within the distal femoral metaphysis. One or all of these sclerotic foci may represent sequelae of avascular necrosis given reported history. No significant joint space narrowing is identified.
Avatar f tn I was involved in an accident where the MRI states I have moderate cartilage loss around patella, joint effusion and a marginal flap on patella ridge. This has cased popping, grinding painful sensations in the knee. Its very hard for me to walk as I'm always limping ect......Is sergury recommended for this?
