Background: The purpose of this study was to compare the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and arthroscopic findings of internal derangement of adult knee joint. Aims and Objective: The objective was also to find out the value of MRI in the finding of ligamento-meniscal injury in adult knee joint during arthroscopy. Material and method: Ligamento-meniscal injury in 45 patients was subjected to MRI evaluation using hospital Sigma contour MRI with a field strength of 1.5 Tesla using 4-mm slice thickness, and those who had significant ligamento-meniscal findings underwent diagnostic and/or therapeutic arthroscopic procedure. Result: The sensitivity and specificity of MRI and arthroscopic findings of these injuries were found for medial meniscus to be 95.83% and 76.19%; for lateral meniscus 86.67% and 90%; for anterior cruciate ligament 97.37% and 85.71%; and posterior cruciate ligament 100% and 97.67%, respectively. Conclusion: The authors maintained that while arthroscopy, though invasive, is the gold standard to diagnose ligamento-meniscal injury, MRI is a noninvasive modality with high sensitivity and specificity for diagnosis and can be done to avoid arthroscopy, which should be best used for the therapy of significant ligamento-meniscal injuries.
