Case Discussion

Sagittal T2 FS MRI shows abnormal increased signal in the ACL in keeping with sprain (partial thickness tear). High T2 signal intensity involving the bone marrow of inferior patella, medial/lateral femoral condyles, and posterior medial/lateral tibial condyles is in keeping with bone bruising (though some of these areas of altered signal intensity could be due to disuse-related osteopenia).
