The MRI report

I got a copy of the MRIs and the official report... The image is not really discernible to me. I guess that's why radiologists get paid the big bucks :)

Findings:

"Tendon signal appears preserved. There is mild increased signal in Lisfranc's ligament consistent with residual of prior moderate sprain. Plantar fascial signal is preserved.

Marrow signal is now diffusely increased in the cuboid with a coronal oblique low signal line across its mid portion from proximal medial to distal lateral consistent with trabecular or hairline fracture. No clear cortical break is identified. There is mild edema in the distal shaft and head of the fifth metatarsal consistent with stress reaction.

Muscle signal appears preserved."

Impression:

"1. Diffuse stress reaction in the cuboid with a coronal oblique hairline fracture or trabecular fracture of the mid cuboid.
2. Stress reaction in the distal shaft and head of the fifth metatarsal."
