Abstract: In both radiological and orthopaedic journals the value of MRI for diagnosing internal derangement of the knee has been assessed recntly. However, results vary widely and no study reports on the differentiation among types of ACL tears.
As far as meniscal pathology is concerned, attention has been drawn by Reicher et al and Glashow et al upon the false positive tears of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus. Where most authors consider signal inversion in the posterior horn of the meniscus as a normal finding in children - due to the higher water content - the same fact in adults can be interpreted as a false positive image or a missed tear at arthroscopy
