Name of the Patient : Abc XyzRahim Palmn / M / 56 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzapadia.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Ankle & Foot.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right ankle joint since 6 months.
H/O vehicular accident with fall prior to this.
M.R.I. of the right ankle and foot was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) axial images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and GRASS sagittal images.
There is evidence of synovial thickening with fluid in the right ankle joint.
A focal hypointense area on the T1 Weighted images which appears hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images is noted along the inferior margin of the talus, anteriorly. There is no perilesional edema/bone erosion or destruction is seen.
Inhomogeneity of the marrow/remodelling of the tarsal bones is noted in the right foot and ankle.
The ligaments around the right ankle joint appear unremarkable.
The articular cartilage around the right ankle joint is also unremarkable.
The MRI features suggests synovial thickening with small right ankle joint effusion. Marrow inhomogeneity is noted in the visualized tarsal bones with probable remodelling. Focal signal change in the talus may represent subchondral degenerative change.
