Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzh.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right knee joint since 6 months with pain on movement with 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 STIR coronal images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted axial images.
There is seen a linear, horizontally oriented hyperintense signal on all the pulse sequences within the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint and reaching upto the inferior articular margin. This represents a horizontal tear.
The anterior and posterior horns of the lateral menisci and anterior horn of the medial meniscus 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 :
The articular cartilage overlying the patella, tibia and femur appears normal.
Altered signal within the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint suggests a horizontal tear.
