Medial Meniscus Root Tear


Coronal proton density image demonstrates a tear of the root of the medial meniscus. Sagittal image confirms heterogenous appearance of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus near its attachment on the tibia.

Diff Dx:

Healed tear or scar may have similar appearance and would be difficult to differentiate from acute tear by imaging alone.
