Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right knee and thigh since 2 months with locking.
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 T1 Weighted and Fast Scan (T2 * ) axial images.
There is a linear, horizontally oriented hyperintense signal on all pulse sequences in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint reaching upto the inferior articular margin. This represents a Grade III meniscal signal (meniscal tear)
Grade II meniscal signal (meniscal degeneration) is noted in the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus.
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 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.
