Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Bulmn / M / 28 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyznshah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Right Knee Joint.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right knee joint.
M.R.I of the right knee joint was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and GRASS sagittal images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
4 mm thick GRASS axial images.
1 mm thick 3D SPGR sagittal sequence in the region of interest.
There is an ill-marginated hyperintense signal on all the pulse sequences along the inferior articular surface of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint and which represents a meniscal tear.
The anterior horns of the lateral and medial meniscus and posterior horn of the lateral meniscus reveal normal configuration and signal characteristics.
Cruciate Ligaments :
The anterior cruciate ligament appears ill-defined and shows a hyperintense signal on the GRASS images which suggests a tear/strain of the anterior cruciate ligament, in all probability.
The posterior cruciate ligament shows normal contour and signal characteristics. ..2/.
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 a moderate sized right knee joint effusion noted.
1. Meniscal tear along the inferior articular surface of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the right knee joint.
2. Ill-defined anterior cruciate ligament with altered signal along its course suggests a tear/strain of the anterior cruciate ligament.
3. A moderate sized right knee joint effusion.
