Name of the Patient : Abc XyzKatplmn / M / 58 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzngsarkar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O right knee pain and swelling. Alleged H/O fall on 00.00.00 .
Past H/O right thigh/femur surgery.
M.R.I of the right knee joint was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick GRASS axial images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted, Proton and GRASS sagittal images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
The anterior and posterior horns of the lateral and medial menisci reveal normal configuration and signal characteristics.
Cruciate Ligaments :
The anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments show normal contour and signal characteristics.
Collateral Ligaments and the Patellar Tendon :
The medial and lateral collateral ligaments and the patellar tendon are normal.
Hoffas Fat Pad :
The Hoffas fat pad is irregularly defined. ..2/..

Articular cartilage and bones :
There is a fracture of the postero-superior aspect of the tibial plateau. There is non-displacement of the fractured fragment. Linear hypointensities on all the pulse sequences in the medial tibial condyle may represent compressed trabeculae. Susceptibility artifacts within the visualized lower femoral shaft may be the result of previous surgery.
Effusion is seen within the right knee joint.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. Fracture of the postero-superior aspect of the right tibial plateau and medial tibial condyle.
2. Effusion within the right knee joint.
