Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzi Chandravalmn / F / 8 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Left Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the left knee with limp.
H/O fall 1 year ago with swelling.
M.R.I of the left 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 blunting of the horns of the lateral menisci of the left knee joint. A part of the meniscus is seen to be displaced medially in the left knee joint, suggesting a bucket handle tear.
The anterior and posterior horns of the 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 normal.
Articular cartilage and bones :
There is seen slight depression of the epiphysis of the medial condyle of the proximal left tibia without change in signal intensity. The epiphysis of the lateral tibial condyle is unremarkable.
The articular cartilage overlying the patella and femur appears normal.
There is no left knee joint effusion.
1. Blunting of the horns of the lateral meniscus of the left knee joint with medial displacement of a part of the lateral meniscus suggests a bucket handle tear.
2. Slight depression of the epiphysis of the medial condyle of the proximal left tibia without change in signal intensity may be the sequelae of previous trauma. The overlying articular cartilage is unremarkable.
