A true story: The report of the diagnostic test after an athletic injury was (unintentionally?) funny. How come?

relevant what the test was? an x ray? blood test? clinical examination? ultrasound? CT scan?

was it the wording of the report that was funny? did it show an abnormality? did it declare there was no abnormality?

was the report funny because it was an athletic injury? could it still have been funny if the injury had been caused in another way? in a traffic accident?

is it relevant which sport was being played? did the humour of the report rely upon the sport that was being played?

Was something misspelled in the report?
Was a word missing? (I'm thinking of something along the lines of "No brain found" when it should have been "No brain damage found")
Was a word used in the wrong context?

Yeah that medical terminology is funny. Once I got a brain CT for late stage Lyme and it was "unremarkable" which basically meant "normal". Than got a Urine test for Dopamine, NE, VMA, (screening for an adrenal gland tumor). The interpreting doctor tagged it as "very impressive". My doc had to tell me that "impressive" does not mean "good job, patient", but rather holy these levels are
ten times the normal limit!

The censoring is done automatically, not by the moderators. That's not that unusual for a board/forum that's intended for an all-ages audience, is it?

*** SPOLIER ************

When baseball player Dizzy Dean got beaned (hit in the head by a ball) in a game, he had a skull x-ray to determine the damage, if any. The next day, a newspaper headline said, "X-ray of Dizzy Dean's head shows nothing." Please scroll down to the bottom of the page to see something: my new puzzle.
