Abstract

MRI is a valuable tool in diagnosing cystic degeneration of medullary infarction. Findings such as unenhanced lesions with well-defined margins are suggestive of fluid collection. The presence of dystrophic calcification and the thinned, but intact, cortex may suggest a benign underlying process such as medullary infarct.
