This presentation clarified the clinical interpretation of 'asymptomatic MCL injury of the elbow observed on MRI among adolescent baseball players' by comparing the findings of MRI with those of standard clinical orthopedic examinations including palpation and US. Our results suggested the finding includes a broad spectrum of injuries; namely, a group of injuries that are characterized by changes associated with 'adaptation' and group of a 'pre-injury' characterized by changes to symptomatic MCL injury.
