Objective. To describe the MR imaging findings in patients with osteolysis of the distal clavicle and to compare the MR imaging appearance of clavicular osteolysis following acute injury with that related to chronic stress. Design and patients. MR imaging examinations were reviewed in 17 patients (14 men, 3 women; ages 16–55 years) with the diagnosis of(More)
Vertebral body compression fractures can cause chronic pain and may result in progressive kyphosis. Although vertebroplasty has been used to treat pain, it does not attempt to restore vertebral body height and eliminate spinal deformity. Percutaneous balloon kyphoplasty is a novel technique, which involves the introduction of inflatable bone tamps into the(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to document a distinct pattern of stress fractures in the fabella of patients with total knee replacement and to call attention to this unusual complication that causes knee pain in postoperative patients. CONCLUSION Stress fractures involving the fabella can be a clinically important entity in the patient with(More)
Understanding of the normal anatomy of the plantar aponeurosis (PA) and familiarity with pathologic conditions are required for an accurate evaluation of the patient with subcalcaneal heel pain. In this study, we evaluated the diagnostic capabilities of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the assessment of the PA with close anatomic correlation. Herein, we(More)
Early diagnosis of osteonecrosis of the femoral head is important for initiating early treatment, which is associated with a more favorable outcome for patients. Confusion in evaluating the severity of the disease, and the clinical outcome after treatment partially is attributed to the use of various staging systems that are based on qualitative rather than(More)
Foot pain and disability may curtail the performance of simple routine tasks, work-related duties, and athletic activities. Disorders of the plantar fascia are commonly encountered in the diagnostic evaluation of subcalcaneal heel pain. The approach to imaging the ankle and foot has undergone significant amendment with the introduction of magnetic resonance(More)
Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is widely used for measurement of bone mineral density (BMD). In routine clinical practice, a diversity of DXA scan findings that deviate from anticipated anatomical landmarks and require a sophisticated approach to patient positioning and scan analysis may be identified. Recognition of various artifacts and pathologic(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the normal anatomy of the structures supporting the proximal portion of the fifth metatarsal bone and investigate the pathogenesis of fractures in this region. MATERIALS AND METHODS In two cadaveric feet, the region of the lateral component of the plantar aponeurosis (PAL), short peroneal muscle (SPM) tendon, and third peroneal muscle(More)
