Patient Data

Age: Adult
Gender: Female

Fracture of the proximal pole of the scaphoid.

Case Discussion

Despite the high scaphoid STIR signal, the preserved bone marrow signal of the proximal pole on T1WI with a signal similar to the other carpal bones excludes the presence of AVN and ensures the viability of the scaphoid bone.
