Focal abnormal signal intensity within the distal femoral condyles or proximal tibial plateaus is frequently seen on T1- or intermediate-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) images of the knee. To characterize the prevalence and significance of these findings better, a retrospective study of MR imaging of the knee, performed on the first 434 consecutive patients at a primarily outpatient community MR imaging center, was undertaken. A signal intensity loss demonstrated on images with a short echo… CONTINUE READING
