Aims and objectives: To evaluate the role of MRI in knee joint injuries and correlating the MRI findings with arthroscopic or operative findings wherever performed.
Study Design: Prospective analytical study.
Materials and methods: MRI of 50 patients with 42 arthroscopic correlation during December 2014 to June 2016 was analyzed.
Results: Out of 50 patients 42 were males and 8 of them were females. The sensitivity, specificity, PPV and NPV was calculated (in%). For ACL it was 94.5,80,94.5,80,for PCL 100, for MM 68.42,86.66,76.47,81.2 and for LM 69.23,94.10,81.81,88.88 respectively
