Conclusions Post-operative menisci with no T2 signal line Methods The study group consisted of 140 patients with 148 were untorn at surgery. The most useful MRI characteristics partially resected menisci who were evaluated with a repeat for predicting torn post-operative menisci at surgery were knee MRI examination and subsequent repeat arthroscopic change in signal pattern through the meniscus compared with knee surgery. Two musculoskeletal radiologists retrospective- baseline MRI, and displaced meniscus fragment followed by ly assessed the following MRI characteristics of the post- high T2 line through the meniscus, intermediate-to-high T2 operative meniscus: contour (smooth or irregular), T2 line line through the meniscus, and irregular meniscus contour. through the meniscus (no line, intermediate signal line, . . . intermediate-to-high signal line, and high fluid-like signal
