MRI Diagnosis of Bone Bruise
September 14, 2005
A 41-year-old man fell 3 ft into a bilge; he landed on his left leg and experienced immediate generalized pain in that knee. Three days later, he consulted his physician, who found minimal effusion in the knee and tenderness of the medial collateral ligament (MCL). No abnormalities were seen on plain x-ray films.
