A double blind prospective study involving fifty patients was performed to assess the diagnostic accuracy of knee MR Imaging using a 0.3 Tesla low field strength scanner. The study compared MR Imaging with arthroscopy. The overall accuracy found for the detection of meniscal tears was 92% and cruciate ligament tears 95%. These results compare favourably with other diagnostic modalities including knee arthroscopy. MR Imaging is good at showing meniscal lesions, especially cleavage tears, though… CONTINUE READING
