This 44-year-old male is being evaluated for cyst. Swelling to proximal right forearm for 3-4 months. Pain from wrist to distal humerus.

(QUIZ ANSWER) IS A FINDING IN THIS CASE: 

Mild insertional biceps tendinitis.

Using the diagnostic web viewer, we have provided images that assist in telling our clinical story. Areas of significance are indicated below.

FINDINGS:

The osseous structures are intact without fracture or dislocations. Normal marrow signal. 

No soft tissue masses are identified. 

The vasculature is without aneurysm. Flow voids are maintained. 

The visualized ulnar nerve and median nerve are within normal limits. 

Triceps and brachialis tendons are intact. Mild insertional biceps tendinitis without macrotear.

The common extensor and common flexor tendon, as well as the collateral ligaments, are normal. 

No abnormal myoedema. Normal muscle signal intensity. 

No joint effusion. Mild radiocapitellar arthrosis is present with erosions at the capitellum and small osteophyte formation. 

CONCLUSION: 

1. No soft tissue masses or cysts are identified. Mild insertional biceps tendinitis without macrotear.

2. Mild radiocapitellar arthrosis with small erosions at the capitellum and small osteophyte formation.
