C/O pain and swelling over the right knee joint since 1 month with occasional 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.

There is evidence of a linear hyperintense signal on all pulse sequences within the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint extending upto the inferior articular margin (se/im:102/5). This most likely represents a horizontal flap tear.
The anterior and posterior horns of the lateral menisci and anterior horn of the medial meniscus reveal normal configuration and signal characteristics.
