Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzra lmn / M / 49 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzesai.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right knee joint since 20 days.
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 T2 Weighted coronal images.
4 mm thick GRASS axial images.
There is an intermediate signal intensity on the T1 Weighted images in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint, not extending upto the articular margin. This lesion appears hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images and represents Grade II meniscal signal (meniscal degeneration).
A small collection of fluid is seen in continuity with the anterior horn of the medial meniscus and may represent a parameniscal cyst.
The anterior and posterior horns of the lateral 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 :
The articular cartilage overlying the patella, tibia and femur appears normal.
Small marginal osteophytes are noted along the articular margins of the right knee joint.
A small right knee joint effusion is noted.
1. Grade II meniscal signal (meniscal degeneration) in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint.
2. A parameniscal cyst in continuity with the anterior horn of the medial meniscus.
3. A small right knee joint effusion.
4. Small marginal osteophytes along the articular margins of the right knee joint, suggesting osteoarthritis.
