Dr. Devaraja SM and Dr. Ashwin Kumar Patil
The menisci serve the important function of shock absorption, distribution of nutrient synovial fluid within the joint, load transmission and stability. The normal adult meniscus is homogenously low in signal intensity on all sequences. Children have intrasubstance signal within their menisci. The normal menisci on MRI, show triangular appearance and sharp central tip. In sagittal plane, on peripheral sections the anterior and posterior horns of menisci unite, forming a bowtie appearance. Purposive random technique is used to select minimum of Thirty cases with history of knee trauma which are referred for MRI to Department of Radiodiagnosis; Medical College. MRI (Hitachi Aperto 0.4 Tesla) study has been done using Tl, T2, PD, fat suppression and gradient echo sequences in various planes. The study had 30 patients out of which 20 were males and 10 were females with age ranging from 14 to 47 years with mean age of 26.5 years.to 40 age group comprises the maximum number of patients which suffered knee injuries. Right knee joint commonly involved to left.
