Trauma to the extensor mechanism of the knee, a common clinical problem, can be accurately evaluated with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. The extensor mechanism consists of the quadriceps muscle and tendon, patella, patellar tendon, and patellar retinacula. Injuries of these structures can be classified into partial and complete tears. Acute injuries are associated with edema, hemorrhage, and fluid collections; chronic injuries often demonstrate redundancy, atrophy, and retraction of the… CONTINUE READING
