OBJECTIVE Recent reports indicate that, compared with MR imaging, plain film radiography often underestimates the extent of injury in children with physeal fracture-separation. Such underestimation may have significant therapeutic and prognostic outcomes. We performed this study to assess the benefit of MR imaging compared with plain film radiography in the diagnosis and immediate treatment of acute fractures of the distal tibial physis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Twenty-nine patients with acute… CONTINUE READING
