Abstract

Sagittal images usually receive the most scrutiny in the magnetic resonance evaluation of meniscal and anterior cruciate ligament tears. We assessed the relative contribution of the coronal view. All knee magnetic resonance examinations performed over a 2-year period that had surgical confirmation were reviewed with respect to the presence of meniscal and anterior cruciate ligament tears. The appearance of an attenuated but uninterrupted anterior cruciate ligament was also evaluated. The coronal and sagittal plane images were evaluated separately. The study included 68 medial menisci, 67 lateral menisci, and 71 anterior cruciate ligaments. The coronal view is especially useful in the evaluation of the lateral meniscus. An anterior cruciate ligament that appears attennated but uninterrupted should be considered intact. The anterior cruciate ligament may be evaluated on the coronal view. The coronal view should be regarded as similar to the lateral chest radiograph, which supplements, but does not replace, the frontal chest radiograph.
