Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to evaluate physeal fracture-separations in children soon after at-risk lower-extremity fractures. MRI scans taken during the "acute" period (within 10 days of fracture) resulted in a change in three of four of the Salter-Harris classifications from the injury radiographs. Twelve children had MRI scans performed in the "early" period (3-17 weeks following fracture). Physeal narrowing or tethering and the absence of Harris arrest lines were found in… CONTINUE READING
