|Limited protocol MRI knee: An accurate and cost effective technique in evaluation of ligamentous and meniscal injuries.|
A total of 233 patients fulfilling the inclusion criteria were included in the study. There were 56 (24%) males and 177 (76%) females. The mean age of the patients was 35.83 ±13.01 years.
Diagnostic accuracy of limited protocol MRI knee for evaluation of injuries of medial meniscus, lateral meniscus, anterior cruciate ligament and posterior cruciate ligament was calculated by comparing it with full protocol MRI knee. Out of 233 patients, true positive cases for anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, medial meniscus and lateral meniscus was found to be 7, 14, 142, and 52. True negative cases of the anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, medial meniscus and lateral meniscus were found to be 96, 219, 91 and 181.
The calculated diagnostic accuracy of limited protocol MRI knee was 100% in all cases of medial meniscus, anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament and lateral meniscus injuries.
