Initial Radiograph Case Photo #2
The original x-ray was reported to the patient as negative 6 weeks ago at the orthopedics office (a copy of the images nor the report were available for review). A new x-ray obtained upon presentation to our office revealed sclerosis in the inferior femoral neck concerning for a stress injury/fracture. There was also an incidental finding of acetabular retroversion predisposing to FAI syndrome. The rest of the exam was unremarkable. An MRI was then obtained which showed an incomplete compression sided stress fracture (~33%) of the medial femoral neck with surrounding edema.
