Knee MRI

This is an MRI of a 40 year old white female who returned to full function without pain at her six month follow up.

The image on the left shows the ACL in between these yellow triangles is totally blown out. It should be nice and dark. In fact it should look like the image on the after image - a nice dark band going diagonally.  No surgery was performed on this patient. This was the result of a precise injection of her own stem cells directly into that ACL.Knee MRI
