  • OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the MR imaging features that enable differentiation between early irreversible osteonecrosis and transient lesions in nontraumatic lesions of the femoral condyle having the "bone marrow edema" pattern on MR imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed 23 nontraumatic painful lesions of the femoral condyle in 23 patients (12 men and 11 women; mean age, 62 years). All patients had undergone radiography of the knee with findings that were normal… CONTINUE READING
