    Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the right knee
     

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the right knee shows on sagittal SE T1-weighted MR image at the level of the anterior cruciate ligament a well defined, rounded low signal intensity mass anteriorly to the cruciate...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the right knee;

    Sagittal SE T1-weighted MR image through the lateral meniscus demonstrates a hypo-intense mass localized in front and above of the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the right knee;

    Sagittal GE T2-weighted MR image (flip angle 35°), same section as 2b, shows an area of low signal intensity in the posterior part of the lesion.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the right knee;

    Coronal GE T2-weighted image (flip angle 35°) visualizes areas of inhomogeneous low and high signal intensity in the lesion and minor joint effusion.
