Knee Meniscus: Understanding Your Knee MRI

Filed under: Knee — Tags: , , , — stemcelldoc @ 4:24 pm

The Centeno-Schultz Clinic offers a large number of non surgical therapies for the knee.  IMS treats dysfunctional muscles. Prolotherapy is used to strengthen loose or sprained ligaments.  Regenexx SD, Regenexx AD and Regenexx SCP can be used to treat damage in meniscus and cartilage.

Understanding your knee MRI is helpful for many patients.  The key structures are identified below.  The image on the left is a frontal view whereas the image on the right is a side view of the left knee.  The principal bones are identified in red:  femur, tibia and fibula.  The meniscus is the dark triangle outlined with dashed circles.  On the left, the yellow circle identifies the medial meniscus whereas the blue circle identifies the lateral meniscus.  The meniscus has an anterior horn and posterior horn which are identified on the image on the right.
