abstract

  • Sagittal FS PD-FSE is comparable to our regular MR protocol in assessing internal knee derangement with an overall agreement of at least 93% on all sites except cartilage. It was also comparable to arthroscopy in assessing the cruciate ligaments and menisci, but had a low specificity for cartilaginous derangements. It can replace our 3 sagittal series comprising T1- and T2-weighted and proton-density-spin-echo sequences, hence saving time and cost.
