MRI Scan Result
« on: June 05, 2018, 08:35:14 PM »
hello, below is my mri scan results for my knee, i have to wait a while to see a specialist. has anybody got an idea what the results mean?

Clinical Hx: pain Normal medial meniscus. Normal articular cartilage in the medial compartment. There is possibly a tiny tear in the central portion of the anterior
horn of the lateral meniscus extending to the superior surface but this area can be overinterpreted MR and I am not certain this is genuine. Normal articular cartilage in the lateral compartment. There is mild lateral patellar tilting but the TTTG is normal at 13 mm. There is also mild patella alta.The patellofemoral articular
cartilage looks normal. There is minor impingement change in the superolateral aspect of the fat pad. The anterior cruciate ligament is thickened and shows high signal consistent with cystic degeneration. There are also small ganglion associated with the ACL sleeve. Normal posterior cruciate ligament and collateral ligaments. Normal extensor tendons. There is no significant effusion in the knee but there is a small medially sited Bakers cyst.



many thanks

Clinical Hx: pain 
[Hx means 'history', ie your story.]

Normal medial meniscus. Normal articular cartilage in the medial compartment. There is possibly a tiny tear in the central portion of the anterior  horn of the lateral meniscus extending to the superior surface but this area can be overinterpreted MR and I am not certain this is genuine.
[The meniscus cartilage on the inner aspect of your knee is normal. So is the joint cartilage on that side. On the outer side there might possibly be a tiny tear of the meniscus cartilage, but the radiologist is dubious about the significance of what he is seeing on the scan]

Normal articular cartilage in the lateral compartment.
[The joint cartilage on the outer side is normal]

There is mild lateral patellar tilting but the TTTG is normal at 13 mm. There is also mild patella alta.The patellofemoral articular cartilage looks normal. There is minor impingement change in the superolateral aspect of the fat pad.
[The kneecap shows some tilt, but the groove where it runs is aligned normally in relation to the attachment of its tendon below the groove]

The anterior cruciate ligament is thickened and shows high signal consistent with cystic degeneration. There are also small ganglion associated with the ACL sleeve.
[There seems to be some kind of cystic fluid in your anterior cruciate ligament which is also thickened and appears to have a cystic (ganglion) area in the outer sleeve of the ligament.

Normal posterior cruciate ligament and collateral ligaments. Normal extensor tendons.
Nothing else major]

There is no significant effusion in the knee but there is a small medially sited Bakers cyst.
[There is no significant fluid in the knee, but at the back on the inner aspect is a small Baker's cyst, which usually comes associated with increased fluid - so maybe the fluid pressure has come down?]

Many thanks for your detailed reply.

I have a very manual job with lots of walking, the pain seems to happen after a bit of walking and I have been signed off work for a month now and it still hurts after a bit of walking and if im standing for a longish period.
