After fx of talus, how long before extent of avn i sknown? : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

After a fracture of the talus, how long will it be before the extent of AVN is known? Would this show up on an MRI and if so, how long after the injury should an MRI be done?

i knew after an x ray after 5 months and considerable pain - it was all fine after 3 months and then the pain returned and i had to go back on crutches - an mri may help but in my case it was obscured by the screws so results were inconclusive.
