Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz P. Dlmn / M / 42 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzngsarkar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain with slight swelling in the right knee joint since 1 1/2 months.
C/O Click +.
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 an irregular hyperintense signal on all the pulse sequences along the inferior surface of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint. This represents a complex tear.
The anterior horn of the medial meniscus and anterior and posterior horns of the lateral meniscus reveal normal configuration and signal characteristics.
Cruciate Ligaments :
The anterior cruciate ligament appears slightly ill-defined and shows a hyperintense signal on the T2 Weighted and GRASS images, more towards its tibial attachment which suggests a strain/partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament.
The posterior cruciate ligament shows 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 normal.
Articular cartilage and bones :
The articular cartilage overlying the patella, tibia and femur appears normal.
Fluid is noted in the right knee joint and in the popliteal bursa.
1. A complex tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint.
2. Partial tear/strain of the anterior cruciate ligament.
3. Fluid in the right knee joint and in the popliteal bursa.
