A lot of the wording is not important to your diagnosis, but I will explain it to you in the easiest words possible (medical language isn't the easiest to understand I know).
"findings: There is no acute fracture or dislocation. There are mild osseous degenerative changes with minimal osteophytes projecting from the distal medial femur and proximal tibia. Several joint space narrowing with no subchondral sclerosis. There is enthesopathy at the tendious insertion suprapatella. No intraarticular calcifications. No knee joint effusion.
impression: Degenerative changes as noted above with no acute abnormality." Ok so degenerative changes with minimal osteophytes projecting from the distal medial femur and proximal tibia: degenerative means it is a deterioration or wear and tear of the bones, this is commonly seen just as a factor of aging and osteophytes are actually better known as bone spurs and are your body's way of trying to increase the size of your knee joint in order to help your body weight be distributed more evenly and these osteophytes commonly cause pain. The location distal medial femur and proximal tibia refers to your the knee joint-these are the 2 bones that make up the knee joint. enthesopathy at the tendious insertion suprapatella: this means there is an abnormality of the suprapatellar tendon where it inserts on the bone
"There is amoderate strain of the medial collateral ligament. There is a tear the medial meniscus is well extending to the superior and inferior surfaces of the meniscus. " Medial collateral ligament: is located on the middle portion of your knee-and it attaches from the bone in your thigh (femur) to the tibia (shin bone), it is common to strain (as you have) or tear this ligament with a medial (middle) meniscal tear as the ligament also partially attaches to the medial meniscus.
"The tear involves the posterior body and medial aspect of the posterior horn. No displaced miniscal fragments identified. Pararectal lateral collateral ligament and lateral meniscus are normal"...This is just saying you have a meniscal tear on the medial side (middle) of your knee and the posterior (back) portion of the medial meniscus. It is nondisplaced, meaning it is torn but the section that is torn is still in the normal position-it isn't hanging into an abnormal place within your joint. The lateral (side of your leg) ligaments and meniscus are not torn according to this.
Minimal thinning of the patellar caratilage in the apex of the patella cartilage with subchondral cystic changes. A focal defect is noted as well. Moderate joint effusion. The anterior nad posterior cruciate ligament are normal. This is just saying you have minimal thinning of the cartilage on your patella and the focal defect refers to a defect on the cartilage which can be caused by inflammation, injury, trauma to the patella. Also, your anterior and posterior (ACL and PCL) cruciate ligaments are not torn.
I hope this helped!!
good luck to you!
