MRI of the foot showed abnormal marrow signal within the proximal phalanx of the great toe extending to the proximal articular surface, mild osteoarthritis in metatarsophalangeal joint, advised CT. What can be expected?
hi i just had an mri on my left foot the impression was an abnormal marrow signal within the proximal phalanx of the great toe extending to the proximal articular surface. its mr appearance is nonspecific. there is mild associated astoarthritis in the first metatarsophalangeal joint . they are suggesting a CT for further eval. and that this would help to evaluate the travecular pattern and discern whether this is a lytic or sclerotic process. i know i have a bone cyst in the same area, could this be what they are seeing?
