What Does My MRI mean in plain English please

The demonstrated portions of the tibia and fibula demonstrate no focal abnormality. There are no marrow signal abnormalities identified to suggest acute fracture, microfracture or bone contusion. The demonstrated soft tissues are unremarkable. There is no evidence for a focal fluid collection, hematoma, or soft tissue mass.

There is linear horizontal high signal identified traversing the posterior aspect of the proximal lower extremity, only seen on the axial T1 weighted sequence, mostly likely representing artifact, as this was not seen on any of the other sequences.  

incomplete and suboptimal examination.
2. No acute abnormality identified on the demonstrated portions of the left lower extremity.
3. the patient may return for a complete examination
