    It is what it says it is: there is edema in the bone with no obvious reason

    The bone edema/swelling could simply be a result of an overuse injury of the Posterior tibial muscle if that is what the patient has. Will resolve with appropriate treatment.

  4. It could also be a compression injury of course.

    But as Craig says it is what is says on the box

    Yes, compression injury is certainly in the differential diagnosis.

    My point is that from the radiologist’s perspective, the edema is non-specific, but it most likely remains the result of a specific injury causing the edema. It’s up to the doctor to find the reason and treat appropriately.
