Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right knee joint since 2 months.
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.
5 mm thick GRASS axial images.
There is a curvilinear hyperintense signal on all the pulse sequences in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus reaching upto the inferior articular surface and which represents Grade III meniscal signal (meniscal tear).
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.
Collateral Ligaments and the Patellar Tendon :
The medial and lateral collateral ligaments and the patellar tendon are normal.

1. Meniscal tear (Grade III meniscal signal) in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint.
2. Minimal fluid within the right knee joint and in the suprapatellar bursa.
