Abstract
MRI has been proved by numerous studies as a noninvasive modality of choice for the evaluation of knee pathology. Its accuracy is comparable to the gold standard; diagnosticarthroscopy [3]. In the case of meniscal pathology, MRI has been shown in some studies to be more accurate than physical examination, which increases diagnostic confidence in those patients for whom surgery is being contemplated. Unlike arthroscopy, it also allows for the assessment of the internal architecture of the region of interest. The study population includes all the patients presenting with history of and /or clinical findings suggestive of knee trauma a and use MRI for evaluation. The MRI is done on the advice of the referring doctor and no patient is made to undergo MRI knee for the sole purpose of this study. Mean age: 31.26 (standard Deviation: 10.6). Most of the patients were in the age range of 20 – 39 years. Since most of the cases were associated with poly trauma, the majority of the cases had acute history of trauma, as shown in the table above. The percentage of individuals with chronic trauma and acute on chronic trauma were almost same, percentage of chronic trauma being marginally high.
