Patient Data

Age: 20 years

Increased signal intensity associated with thickening within the proximal superficial fibers of the adductor magnus muscle. The region of interest is only partially covered on the axial sequences.

Case Discussion

Thickening and T2-weighted (FS) increased signal within muscle fibers are consistent with a BAMIC grade 1 muscle injury.
