    Patient with a recent trauma of the wrist. No sign of fracture at the initial radiographs

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: 1;

    A recent transverse fracture in the scaphoid (the sclerotic line) on a follow-up radiographs (same patient as 1A).

    GE3D-T1w sequence TR/TE/TI=30/12/-. A fracture of the scaphoid at the MRI, 5 days after trauma. Evidence of a clearly fracture line with a signal intensity different from the adjacent osseous structures (same patient...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: 1;

    GE-T1w sequence TR/TE/TI=50/16/-. Same patient as Fig. 2a. This MRI-sequence shows the fracture of the scaphoid even more clearly than fig. 2. The dark lines parallel to the fracture are chemical shift related...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: 1;

    STIR (fast short inversion recovery)sequence TR/TE/TI=1000/30/85. This sequence shows the edema in the scaphoid bone. Same patient as fig. 2a+b.

GE-T1w sequence TR/TE/TI=50/16/-. Same patient as Fig. 2a. This MRI-sequence shows the fracture of the scaphoid even more clearly than fig. 2. The dark lines parallel to the fracture are chemical shift related artificial lines not corresponding to the fracture line.
