Patient
female, 22 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    MRI of the knees
     

    Coronal SE-T1 and sagittal GE-T2* sequences: irregular and flattened lateral femoral condyle, dysmorphic patella alta and thickened cartilages.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MRI of the knees;

    Axial SE-T1 sequence: patellar external dislocation. Note the reduced femoral biceps muscle mass replaced with a prominent fatty infiltration.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MRI of the knees;

    Sagittal proton-density-weighted TSE sequence: according to the described joint structures alterations, cruciate ligaments are thin. The fatty infiltration of the posterior muscles of the thigh is evident in these...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MRI of the knees;

    Sagittal proton-density-weighted TSE and GE-STIR sequences show thickened femoral and tibial cartilages.

Sagittal proton-density-weighted TSE sequence: according to the described joint structures alterations, cruciate ligaments are thin. The fatty infiltration of the posterior muscles of the thigh is evident in these sagittal images too.
 
Sagittal proton-density-weighted TSE and GE-STIR sequences show thickened femoral and tibial cartilages.
