PURPOSE To determine the prevalence of Baker cyst in a general orthopedic population and its association with effusion, internal derangement, and degenerative arthropathy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Reports of 400 knee magnetic resonance imaging examinations were reviewed. Presence of Baker cyst, effusion, internal derangement (meniscal and/or anterior(More)
PURPOSE To determine the sensitivity and specificity of ultrasonography (US) in the detection of lateral epicondylitis and identify the US findings that are most strongly associated with symptoms. MATERIALS AND METHODS Internal review board approval was obtained for retrospective review of the patient images, and the need for informed consent was waived.(More)
Sesamoid bones and secondary centers of ossification account for the accessory bones of the foot, and there is a wide range of frequency with which these different ossicles appear. They are usually incidental asymptomatic findings on imaging studies, and their clinical importance lies in not mistaking them for fractures. Occasionally these ossicles can(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine if the radiographic assessment of patella alta using the patellar tendon:patella ratio can be applied to sagittal MR images of the knee. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sagittal T1-weighted MR images of 46 knees were reviewed with corresponding radiographs. After lengths of the patella and patellar tendon were(More)
OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to evaluate the quality of images obtained with a prototype imaging technique, multiacquisition variable-resonance image combination (MAVRIC), compared with fast spin-echo (FSE) images in the evaluation of patients who have undergone hip, shoulder, or knee arthroplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS MRI with metal-artifact(More)
We report 2 patients who developed pain in the region of the iliopsoas tendon after undergoing total hip arthroplasty. The pain was temporarily relieved by sonographically guided injection of steroid and anesthetic and was subsequently treated by surgical release of the tendon.
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate whether routine clinical sonographic evaluation of femoral trochlear cartilage can identify abnormalities in patients with knee pain. METHODS Short-axis sonograms of the femoral trochlear cartilage were obtained from 20 symptomatic knees in 20 consecutive patients (16 women and 4 men; mean age, 54(More)
The approach to the radiographic diagnosis of bone tumors consists of analyzing the lesion in an organized fashion, with attention to the specific radiographic features of tumor location, margins, and zone of transition; periosteal reaction; mineralization; size and number of lesions; and presence of a soft-tissue component. Patient age is also an important(More)
PURPOSE To determine if a symptomatic accessory navicular bone, a normal variant, displays a pattern of altered signal intensity on magnetic resonance (MR) images indicative of an abnormality that could account for the patient's foot pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS Both feet were imaged in seven patients with an accessory navicular bone on radiographs and(More)
