      Hi Steve,

      I scanned a guy recently who had pain in his distal anterior thigh after getting up from a chair. I didn’t see anything of concern but when I was scanning higher up in the mid thigh, there was just a change in echogenicity (increased) of the rec fem muscle belly. He had a compression bandage there for a couple of days. The asymptomatic side did not have this increased echo change.
      Is this of any significance?

      I attached some pictures.

      Hi Diane,

      This looks like an old injury to me,

      I can’t see how this is an acute injury.

      Sometimes you see localised muscle atrophy in lower limb muscles, especially in the medial gastrocnemius for no apparent reason.

      Tis case is either an example of that, or more likely an old injury.
