Objective: Bipartite patella is accepted as a normal anatomic variant of patella, and is identified incidentally on knee radiographs taken for other reasons. The aim of this study was to characterize the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of bipartite patella without bone marrow edema. Materials and Methods: In total, 1.000 patients were evaluated retrospectively. Imaging was performed on 1.5T MRI unit using extremity coil. A standardized knee protocol was used. The obtained images were
