Acute knee pain and had an MRI

Patient : What is suprapatellar fat pad impingement? My knee hurts a lot and that is what it said in my MRI results. Also said this about my bone marrow. with in the distal femoral metaphysis, along the posterior cortex, are thin bands of T1 hypo intense curvilinear signal. There is minimal curvilinear signal. there is minimal associatedT2 signal increase. no underlying cortical erosion or periosteal reaction is seen. Bome marrow is otherwise mildly heterogeneous without focal abnormality.
