Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Chaurlmn / M / 13 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Alleged H/O fall while driving a motorbike with injury to the right knee 1 year back.
C/O pain in the right knee joint since then.
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 Fast Scan (T2 *) axial images.
There is a linear hyperintense signal on all the pulse sequences in the posterior horns of the medial and lateral menisci not reaching upto the articular margin. This suggest Grade II meniscal signal (Meniscal degeneration).
The anterior 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 are normal.
There is an intermediate signal on the T1 Weighted images in the mid segment of the patellar tendon, which appears hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images. This intratendinous signal may suggest a strain of the patellar tendon.
Hoffas Fat Pad :
The Hoffas fat pad is normal.
Articular cartilage and bones :
The articular cartilage overlying the patella, tibia and femur appears normal.
1. Grade II meniscal signal (meniscal degeneration) in the posterior horns of the medial and lateral menisci.
2. Intratendinous signal in the mid segment of the patellar tendon, suggest a strain of the patellar tendon.
