The tendon at the patellar base is thickened and shows increased signal, especially on T1-weighted images. Wavy anterior contours of the tendon. T2-hyperintense peritendinous oedema or residual haematoma.
The findings suggest a non-acute partial rupture with scar tissue formation within the tendon.
