Hi, I had an MRI for a meniscal tear. My report also notes a sharply marginated lobular, 1.5 cm lesion within the medial femoral metaphysis adjoining the growth plate and perhaps just barely traversing it. It has elevated T2 signal intensity.
Does anyone know what this could be? I'm going to the doctor next week.
Colleen - I don't know what this means and I hope you get some easy answers next week at your appointment. My best guess would be that the lesion mentioned, is either a disruption in your articular cartilage in the medial compartment, or an area of bone that has edema (swelling) measuring 1.5cm.
Good luck! Was there evidence of meniscus damage too?
