I just got MRI test results back and am SO confused, I would LOVE any thoughts or ideas as to what this means?
There is asymmetry in the mandibular condyles. The left mandibular
condyle shows loss of normal fatty marrow, flattening of the cortical
surface of the left mandibular condyle, and decreased signal
consistent with sclerotic change. There is also thinning of the left
temporomandibular joint cartilage and meniscus, as well as
osteophytes along the anterior margin of the condyle. The cartilage
and meniscus in the right temporomandibular joint appears fairly well
preserved, but there is persistent anterior positioning of the right
meniscus on closed jaw position, which recaptures on open position.
Anterior translation with open jaw is normal bilaterally. The bony
margins of the glenoid fossae are unremarkable bilaterally.
Thank you SO much... I am in a great amount of pain, I would love any advice...
