The article focuses on the study titled "Clinical Course of Knees With Asymptomatic Meniscal Abnormalities: Findings at 2-Year Follow-Up After MR Imaging-Based Diagnosis," by M. Zanetti et al. published in the December 2005 issue of the journal "Radiology." The prospective cohort study has attempted to determine the short-term clinical course of asymptomatic meniscal tears. It has been pointed out that none of the patients with meniscal tear required surgery during the follow-up period, and only 3 patients sought the advice of a physician.

    Arthroscopy-based semiquantitative scoring systems such as Outerbridge and Noyes' scores were the first to be developed for the purpose of grading cartilage defects. As magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) became available faor evaluation of the osteoarthritic knee joint, these systems were adapted...

    Discoid medial meniscus is very rare and bilateral discoid medial meniscus is extremely rare. We report symptomatic bilateral discoid meniscus with abnormal attachment to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in three patients and we think that our report is a combination of very rare conditions. The...

    Purpose: To evaluate if osteonecrosis diagnosed on MR images of the knee relates to reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and may be caused by an insufficiency fracture. Material and Methods: Thirty-two consecutive patients (8 men, 24 women; age range 27-82 years, mean 62...
