Abstract: Fifty consecutive knee injury patients were examined and investigated for this study. Aim of this study was to assess the significance/accuracy of MR imaging in evaluation and categorization of cruciate ligament injuries with study of associated injuries of ligaments, menisci, bones and surrounding soft tissue of knee joint. MRI is more sensitive than clinical tests to detect the cruciate ligaments injuries, meniscal tears, associated lesions and classifying them into grades. MRI being noninvasive does not involve morbidity associated with other tests like arthroscopy.
