Mri scan knee injury

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan knee injury


Avatar n tn AGREE !
Avatar n tn This is pain due to nerve irritation and could be sciatica though this travels from thigh to knee, compressive neuropathy due to prolapsed intervertebral disc, nerve compression at the hip joint. It is advisable to undergo an MRI scan spine to check for any disc lesions, bony spurs, spondylolisthesis etc causing compressive radiculopathy. You might need an MRI knee or an arthroscopy of knee to look for any bony spurs etc irritating the nerves.
Avatar n tn 7 yrs ago i had an accident which resulted in a muscle crush injury to the back of the knee. I still have many problems with it after all these years. In cold, damp weather it aches and becomes swollen, retains water so becomes puffy and i find myself tripping over more as my leg feels wooden at times. Is there anything that can be done to ease this and why am i still having these problems after 7years.
Avatar n tn What does "High signal within the posterior horn of the medial and lateral menisci suggesting small tears" mean in lamens terms? Does this sort of knee injury usually wind up with orthoscopic surgery, normal surgery, or does it usually heal on its own?
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 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 m tn This happens due to mal-alignment of the knee cap on bending the knee (and hence any imaging study has to be taken with the knee bent), injury to the knee (you may have sustained it in past), flat feet, over tight or over lax muscles around the knee joint. All these aspects will have to be investigated by your doctor. Other possibilities are bursitis (inflammation of fluid filled sac over joints), tendonitis (inflammation of cords joining muscles to bones) or due to weakness of patellar bone.
Avatar m tn From there hopefully your doctor can perform tests to find out if there is tissue damage, or what the exact injury is. Until then, I highly suggest you stay off of your knee as much as you can, i.e. no running. You can try ice, or heat, whichever feels better. I would be careful when stretching as well in case you aggravate your knee. Good luck and I hope your knee feels better soon!
Avatar m tn my doctor said that the MRI didnt show anything wrong with my knee at all. the doctor thought it could be the fatty pad behind my acl wedging between my miniscus and bone, he also told me every thing looked good insided my knee.. after my surgery my simptoms are still the same. they have prescribed all kinds of anti inflamatories and pain killers non of them work at all. the pain is unbearable when i stand or walk for more than 10-15 minutes. the pain reaches a level 10.
Avatar n tn Hi! I'm sorry to hear about your knee. It sounds to me like either a ligament or possibly cartilage. Does it feel unstable or is it still giving out on you? Does it ache after sitting for long amounts of time? Is your pain off to the side of the knee or under your knee cap? These answers may help me know better.
Avatar f tn I twisted my knee and when it happen I heard and felt a pop on the inside of my knee. Also, now when I walk, I have pain and crackling on the outside, under the knee. When I am walking and I have to turn or piviot, I get a pain that runs the inside of my knee. And now I can just be standing there and my knee feels like it is really loose and feels like I hyperextended in, the knee pushes back. How ling should I wait to go to the doctor or should I continue to try and heal it myself.
1087481 tn?1391442376 Can you please explain what these results of a knee MRI mean? "...slight increased signal to the medial femoral condyle near the insertion of the medial collateral ligament..." Thank you!
Avatar m tn I recently had an MRI for a knee injury. The diagnosis is "an unstable tear involving the posterior horn and body with vertical and horizontal components extending to the articular surface. The tear extends into the posterior horn root attachment". WIll this injury require surgery?
Avatar m tn I played college soccer but had to retire due the most recent injury to my left knee. That injury happened around the second week of August in 2009. It was nothing traumatic other than being kicked below the knee causing a contusion to my shin and then started causing pain in my upper knee.
Avatar n tn Fast forward to 3 months later. MRI shows my knee is healed but still have tightness and when I keep my knee bent a pulling sensations goes up into my lower back. Now my lower back and hips kill me all the time when i walk. I can walk less now (41/2 months later) than I could when the accident first happened. Also the muscles in my back seem to be pulling . It is hard to hold my head up at times. Sometimes my hands go numb and I can feel a pulling down my left arm.
Avatar f tn The inside of my knee burned and hurt to even touch at that point. I got an MRI after that visit. When I went back to see my Dr. again, he said I only have a small tear in my menisuc on the inside of my knee and that he doesn't think I need surgery. He shot me up with cortisone, warned me it would be sore for a day or two, and then said to just go get a check up in a month. I got the cortisone shot 3 days ago, the pain, popping, and knee giving out has not gone away.
1456157 tn?1285374334 A few minutes into a soccer game, she apparently dropped that knee onto the field in the same spot and at the end of the game, had a pretty swollen knee (same knee - apparent re-injury). We went back to the Sports Therapist who worked with her and again after a few days, felt her knee was okay and the ligaments felt good. Today while playing some game in PE, she went down on that knee again and it's pretty swollen tonight.
Avatar f tn You make an appointment to see your doctor, who will examine the knee and will probably send you for an xray or an ultrasound scan (or MRI) depending on what the doctor decides may be the cause. You will also need a referral to a physiotherapist to give you specific exercises to do on the knee. Doesn't sound good with you "cracking" your knees in the morning. Forget about different procedures at the moment.
