The Correlation between Clinical and MRI Diagnosis of Knee Pathology & Variants and Findings Atarthroscopy

Ankem Saikishore [2] | Puneet Prakash [4]


Abstract: In day-to-day clinical practice, the MRI is routinely used to support the diagnosis of pathologies and anatomical variants of knee prior to recommending arthroscopic examination and surgery. This single centre study primarily derived the correlation between clinical examination, magnetic resonance imaging and arthroscopy in diagnosis of pathologies and anatomical variants of knee joint. The secondary objectives were to assess the temporal variation between the MRI and arthroscopic findings as mentioned above, Comparison of results with that in the literature. MRI had high sensitivity and specificity in diagnosis of most pathologies, except patellar malalignment and complete PCL tear where clinical examination performed better. Comparisons with similar studies carried world over the results were comparable and showed minor differences.
