Introduction (what they are)[edit | edit source]

The highest incidence of bone stress injuries (BSIs) occurs in competitive cross country runners and track-and-field athletes. [1]

Mechanism of Injury[edit | edit source]

Diagnosis[edit | edit source]

BSIs can be detected from MRIs of periosteal edema as well as differing levels of bone marrow edema. More severe injuries may be indicated by a cortical fracture line on the MRI. [1]
