Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in both knees with click since 3 months and limp since 8 days.
M.R.I of the right knee joint was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and GRASS sagittal images.

5 mm thick GRASS axial images.
There is a linear, intermediate signal intensity lesion on the T1 Weighted images in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint, extending upto the inferior articular margin. This most likely represents a horizontal flap tear.
The anterior horn of the medial meniscus and the anterior and posterior horns of the lateral menisci reveal normal configuration and signal characteristics.
