A sagittal proton density spin-echo image, showing that the anterior cruciate ligament (indicated by black arrows) is intact. The medial oblique menisco-meniscal ligament (indicated by white arrows) is seen traversing over the intercondylar notch parallel to the tibial plateau.
 
A series of images obtained with coronal proton density fast spin-echo with fat saturation, showing that the medial oblique menisco-meniscal ligament (indicated by blue arrows) connects the frontal horn of the medial meniscus (indicated by white arrow) with the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus. The anterior cruciate ligament (red arrows) is seen having a high intrasubstance signal but being otherwise intact. [green arrows indicate the posterior cruciate ligament].
