In musculoskeletal imaging,
variant anatomy is increasingly being identified with the increased use of non-invasive imaging.
These include accessory muscles,
anomalous nerve pathways,
or tendon insertions.
Most of the time,
these are asymptomatic and incidental.
depending on location,
they may present with a clinically apparent soft tissue mases,
or symptoms pertaining to nerve or vascular impingement.
Specific treatment is not usually indicated,
unless they are symptomatic,
and will be directed towards the underlying pathology.
This poster aims to describe a few common variants encountered in our institution,
as well as their potential clinical implications.
