Abstract :

In our study, we have imaged about 92 cases of knee by magnetic resonance imaging. Spectrum of meniscal tears are studied in these cases and the meniscal tears are classified into vertical (longitudinal), horizontal (longitudinal), flap, radial and bucket handle tears based on the characteristic MRI appearance. Arthroscopy was considered as gold standard. The sensitivity, specificity and accuracy obtained on correlating MRI findings with arthroscopy were 96.3%, 81.82% and 94.57% respectively. Various configurations of meniscal tears were also correlated with arthroscopy findings separately. Among the various configurations of meniscal tears, detection of the bucket handle tear and complex tear by MRI has high specificity and accuracy. The sensitivity for the detection of the bucket handle tear is 100%, where as sensitivity for the detection of the complex tear is relatively low
