Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzesai.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right knee since 1 year.
M.R.I of the right knee joint was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick GRASS axial images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted, Proton and GRASS sagittal 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 normal.
Articular cartilage and bones :
A well circumscribed hypointensity on all the pulse sequences is noted within the lateral femoral condyle in the subchondral region. It may represent an area of sclerosis (scans 104.12, 102.7, 103.7).
A small effusion is noted within the right knee joint.
The articular cartilage overlying the patella, tibia and femur appears normal.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. A small effusion within the right knee joint.
2. A well circumscribed area of altered signal intensity within the lateral femoral condyle in the subchondral region may represent an area of sclerosis.
