Other Studies:
X-Ray: Multiple cysts within the left scaphoid without evidence of a fracture Case Photo #1

MRI: Multiple cysts within the left scaphoid that prevented visualization of potential fractures. Irregularity of the volar surface of the scaphoid. Bone marrow edema was seen in the scaphoid, lunate, capitate, and base of third metacarpal. Central fenestration versus perforation of the TFCC near the radial attachment was also seen. A CT was suggested to better assess for a fracture. Case Photo #3 Case Photo #4

CT: Cystic changes of the scaphoid with no acute fractures. A 1 mm ossicle in the scapholunate interface was identified as well as a 4 mm ossicle in the volar aspect of the lunocapitate interface. Case Photo #2
