Abstract

It is widely accepted that although valuable in the diagnosis of the discoid meniscus and tears, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be insufficient in determining the type of the tear. This study calculates the sensitivity and specificity of MRI in determining the presence and absence of tears and how these values differ for different types of tears.
