    MRI help!!! What does it mean?

    Below I have posted the MRI report I was given. Keep in mind I'm a 17 year old male and I've had pain at the top of my right buttocks that was hurting me.

    Findings: No free pelvic fluid. No edema or atrophy within the right gluetal musculature. No right trochanteric bursitis. No right hip joint effusion. The visualized portions of the right rectus femoris, iliopsoas and hamstring tendons are unremarkable. There is linear edema within the posterior right iliac bone adjacent to the right sacroiliac joint effusion. This is concerning for a nondisplaced posterior iliac stress fracture.

    Impression:
    Linear edema and T1 hypointense line within the posterior right iliac bone subjacent to the right sacroiliac joint concerning for a nondisplaced posterior iliac stress fracture.

    Can someone please translate to me and if possible how long recovery will be? Thanks!!!!!

    Re: MRI help!!! What does it mean?

    Welcome to the board. I can give you some idea of the language but you will need to talk with your doctor to find out what it means. I'm pretty experienced with basic spine stuff but you are getting into more technical detail with bone than I have knowledge of! (I assume you know members are not medical professionals... )

    I gather you have a nondisplaced iliac stress fracture. There appears to be some swelling within the iliac bone that is next to the right sacroiliac joint...and I gather, this is something that needs further investigation as it is not customary.

    "No free pelvic fluid. No edema or atrophy within the right gluetal musculature. No right trochanteric bursitis. No right hip joint effusion. The visualized portions of the right rectus femoris, iliopsoas and hamstring tendons are unremarkable."

    The following things are all within the normal range -- no swelling within the muscles of the right glute --no bursitis and the hip joint looks OK. The tendons of the right rectus femoris, iliopsoas and hamstring are fine.

    If you haven't done so already, pull up some anatomical diagrams on the internet and locate those tendons, etc. to better understand what body parts are involved in your injury.

    Then when you go to your doctor, you will have a basic understanding of what is wrong and will be able to discuss a plan of treatment with the doctor.

    Good luck. Hope you heal quickly.

    you have a fracture. Please let us know what the dr. says-I'm guessing just time to heal, but very curious. Best of luck.

    I thought the major finding of this report was not the fracture itself, but the edema that is found in the bone near the fracture that adjoins the right sacroiliac joint.

    My sons played division 1 from age 9 playing up of course through college & the colleges & high schools around here used a particular orthopedic that was a div 1 soccer team dr which was a great find for us when it came to injured knees, broken feet but for a back problem such as your MRI indicates if it were my son i would find out who the soccer team ortho is & see if he knows a practice limited to spines only neurosurgeon or a spine only orthopedic specialist that works with soccer players.
