Background: Knee injury is the second most common problem in the musculoskeletal system for which patients consult their general physician or an orthopaedician. Since its introduction to musculoskeletal imaging in the early 1990`s and then onwards, MRI has revolutionized diagnostic imaging of the knee joints. Magnetic resonance imaging has an advantage in diagnosis of menisci, ligaments and cartilages of the knee joints along with their pathologies and injuries, particularly in the early detection of grade I and grade II lesions. The ‘knee joint’, also known as the tibio-femoral joint, is one of the largest and a complex joint of the human body, and of one of the most frequently injured joints as the bony articular surface alone is inherently unstable. Therefore, it is imperative to study internal derangements in traumatic and degenerative knees
