Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Anlmn / M / 39 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzri.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
H/O locking of the right knee joint.
H/O injury to the right knee while swimming on 00.00.0000 with pain, mild swelling and 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.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and 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 represent a Grade III meniscal signal (Meniscal tear) (horizontal tear).
The anterior and posterior horns of the lateral menisci 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.
Hoffas Fat Pad :
The Hoffas fat pad is normal.
Articular cartilage and bones :
The articular cartilage overlying the patella, tibia and femur appears normal.
There is slight lateral tilt of the patella with slight extension of the lateral patellar margin beyond the lateral margin of the lateral femoral condyle.
Minimal fluid is seen within the knee joint and the suprapatellar bursa.
1. Grade III meniscal signal (meniscal tear) (horizontal tear) in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint.
2. Minimal fluid within the knee joint and the suprapatellar bursa.
3. Slight lateral patellar subluxation with lateral patellar tilt.
