Seems like it should be pretty easy, right? By now you probably know that the anatomy is deceptively complex, combinations of injuries can be challenging, and of course the referring clinician’s expectations are as high as the range of meniscus injuries is wide.

You may be familiar with direct presentations of pathology, but what about the indirect signs – maybe in a postsurgical knee? How can you tweak the protocols on your magnet to maximize visualization and minimize patient discomfort? The source of the patient’s complaint may be a patellar tendon or posterior corner injury – helps to see a bunch of those so you can readily recognize the appearance. Well, we’ve seen a ton of them, and we’re willing to share!

We can be your guide through the intricacies of the knee. In the Knee MRI Mastery courses, we give you everything you need in order to evaluate this joint. In the two most recent series, Meniscus MRI and MRI of the Supporting Structures, we focus on two important areas of assessment. Through some of our legacy series, Case Review, Professional and Advanced Orthopaedic and Joint, we round out our discussion of the pathology that occurs in the knee.
