PURPOSE To determine the accuracy of T1-weighted fat-suppressed (FS) three-dimensional (3D) fast low-angle shot (FLASH) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for the detection of articular cartilage abnormalities of the patellofemoral joint. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-one patients with suspected internal derangement of the knee were examined with a T1-weighted(More)
The SAPHO (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis) syndrome includes a complex group of disorders characterized by peculiar bone lesions, most commonly involving the anterior chest wall, and sometimes accompanied by dermatologic manifestations. The clinical and radiographic features of this syndrome are well described, but few studies have(More)
Although the clinical results of total joint arthroplasty are usually excellent, some implants develop loosening and require revision. Implants usually fail by a combination of mechanisms, but different basic designs tend to show different dominant mechanisms of failure. Infection causes failure of about 1-5% of cases of primary arthroplasty. Clues to the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate acromial shape in relation to age, sex, symmetry, and presence of subacromial enthesophytes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three hundred ninety-four cadaveric scapulas were reviewed. Specimens were categorized by sex and age (age range, 20-89 years). Acromial morphology was typed according to the Bigliani classification: type I, flat; type II,(More)
In this article we review the imaging features and significance of the Bennett lesion of the shoulder. Standard radiographic, computed arthrotomographic, and MR findings in three baseball pitchers diagnosed with Bennett lesions of the shoulder are discussed. A crescent-shaped region of mineralization at the posteroinferior aspect of the glenoid rim,(More)
In the appropriate clinical situation, MR imaging is a powerful tool in the diagnosis of spinal infection. Imaging of spinal infections requires the use of a combination of T1-weighted and T2-weighted or STIR sequences. Contrast enhancement is useful and helps to define paraspinal and epidural disease. Knowledge of potential pitfalls with MR imaging and of(More)
Fifty-four patients with anterior cruciate ligament tears that were arthroscopically reconstructed within 3 months of initial injury were prospectively evaluated. Patients with grade 3 medial collateral ligament, lateral collateral ligament, or posterior cruciate ligament tears were excluded. Eighty percent of our patients had a bone bruise present on the(More)
The clinical presentation of acute calcific tendinitis can be quite dramatic. This report describes a patient with this entity who had calcification in an unusual area, accompanied by abnormalities seen on radiography and magnetic resonance imaging. Clinical aspects of acute calcific tendinitis are also reviewed. With recognition of this entity, treatment(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to reevaluate previously reported MR imaging findings for vertebral osteomyelitis that include decreased signal intensity in the disk and adjacent vertebral bodies on T1-weighted images, increased signal intensity in the disk and adjacent vertebral bodies on T2-weighted images, loss of endplate definition on(More)
