Rhabdomyolysis has traditionally been a clinical diagnosis with healthcare providers utilizing historical context, physical exam, and laboratory data to arrive at a diagnosis. However, there are myriad imaging findings that may be corroborative and support the presumptive diagnosis. This paper seeks to review imaging findings associated with rhabdomyolysis using different modalities including radiography, sonography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and bone scintigraphy.
