CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right knee with locking of both knees since 7-8 months.
M.R.I of the right knee joint was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and GRASS sagittal images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
5 mm thick GRASS axial images.
There is a linear hyperintense signal, on all the pulse sequences in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint, not extending upto the articular margin. This represents Grade II meniscal signal (meniscal degeneration).
Grade I meniscal signal is noted in the anterior and posterior horns of the lateral meniscus.
The anterior horn of the medial meniscus reveals 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 :

Articular cartilage and bones :
Mild marginal osteophytes are seen around the knee joint.
The articular cartilage overlying the patella, tibia and femur appears normal.
