Abstract

Knee magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been shown to be sensitive and specific for the detection of knee meniscal lesions and cruciate ligament injuries, and it is more reliable than clinical examination itself.1This has led to the suggestion that general practitioners (GPs) could use knee MRI in the assessment of these pathologies, making appropriate and informed decisions.2
