Please help me interpret this

Although large oseteophyes are noted in the medial and lateral compartments, there is conspicuous preservation of hyaline cartilage with joint spaces well preserved.  There is lateral subluxation of the patella.  There is a loss of hyaline cartilage in the lateral facet or the patella inferiorly. Edema is noted superficial to the patella tendon. There is tendinopathy in the patellar tendon which is thickened and of increased T2.  The quadriceps tenon also contains edema within the reflecting tendinopathy.  The cruciate ligaments are intact.  There is a mild MCL sprain.  The lateral supporting structures of the knee were intact. There is preservation of the hyaline cartilage in the medial and lateral compartments.  There is degenerative cystic change in the tibial plateau. Irregularity in the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus
