MRI appearance of chondral delamination injuries of the knee.


Journal Article

OBJECTIVE: We describe the MRI appearance of five cases of chondral delamination of the knee. CONCLUSION: Chondral delamination injuries of the knee show increased linear signal abnormality at the junction of the articular cartilage and subchondral bone on T2-weighted (fast spin-echo) images of the knee. Identifying and treating these lesions results in an improved prognosis for patients with this injury.
