Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzh Bhalmn / M / 39 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right knee with pain on movement and locking since 1 day.
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 and Fast Scan (T2 *) axial images.
There is seen a linear hyperintense signal on all the pulse sequences in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint reaching upto the inferior articular margin. This represents a horizontal flap tear (scans 104.4, 102.4).
The anterior and posterior horns of the lateral meniscus 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.
- 2 - Scan-00003
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.
Minimal fluid is noted in the right knee joint.
There is focal hypointense signal on all pulse sequences in the proximal tibia which most likely represents a bone island.
1. A horizontal flap tear in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint.
2. Minimal right knee joint effusion.
3. A bone island in the proximal tibia.
