A wide array of supernumerary and accessory musculature has been described in the anatomic, surgical, and radiology literature. In the vast majority of cases, accessory muscles are asymptomatic and represent incidental findings at surgery or imaging. In some cases, however, accessory muscles may produce clinical symptoms. These symptoms may be related to a(More)
OBJECTIVE The purposes of this review are to describe commonly available 3D MRI techniques and to discuss the literature to date regarding the utility of such techniques in the assessment of internal derangement of joints. CONCLUSION Long acquisition and postprocessing times and limited contrast characteristics have generally prohibited routine use of 3D(More)
The accessory soleus muscle (ASM) has been an unusual anatomical variant since its first recordings in Guy's Hospital Reports of the early nineteenth century. Individuals with an ASM may present with symptoms of pain and/or swelling and were often misdiagnosed as soft-tissue tumors such as hemangioma, sarcoma, or lipoma. The aim of our study was threefold:(More)
OBJECTIVE Unenhanced MRI, indirect MR arthrography, and direct MR arthrography have been used in the radiologic evaluation of patients with suspected labral tears and chondral lesions of the hip. The purpose of this article is to examine the existing evidence for the use of these techniques in patients with hip pain and suspected labral or chondral(More)
An increasing number of joint replacements are being performed annually. Complications of joint arthroplasty are diverse and may involve the hardware as well as osseous and soft tissue components. Although modalities such as conventional radiography and scintigraphy remain the mainstay of radiological investigation, in some cases these traditional methods(More)
To evaluate MRI imaging appearances of nodular fasciitis in a pathologic-proven series of 29 patients. Review of the orthopedic oncology and pathology databases yielded 51 cases of histologically proven nodular fasciitis. MR imaging was available in 29 patients. Three musculoskeletal radiologists retrospectively reviewed all cases in consensus. Imaging(More)
PURPOSE To determine the frequency of imaging findings and complications related to bioabsorbable femoral cross pins at follow-up magnetic resonance (MR) imaging studies after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and compare these MR imaging findings with clinical evaluation findings. MATERIALS AND METHODS The institutional review board(More)
PURPOSE To determine the accuracy of secondary magnetic resonance (MR) imaging signs of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) insufficiency in predicting clinical anterior translational knee laxity, in the presence of an intact graft, after ACL reconstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approval was obtained, and the requirement to obtain(More)
Three morbidly obese women were referred to us with suspected soft-tissue sarcomas. All lesions arose from the medial subcutaneous tissues of the thigh, and were shown to represent massive localised lymphoedema (MLL), a rare condition occurring in morbidly obese adults. MR imaging typically demonstrates a sharply demarcated, pedunculated mass consisting of(More)
To investigate the accuracy of non-arthrographic 3-T MRI compared to hip arthroscopy in the assessment of labral and cartilaginous pathology in patients with suspected FAI. Following IRB approval and waived consent, 42 consecutive cases of suspected FAI with non-arthrographic 3-T MRI and arthroscopy of the hip were reviewed. High-resolution TSE MR imaging(More)
