Abstract

MRI of the knee has become an indispensable clinical tool in the management of chronic knee conditions. MRI for acute knee injuries is less well established but is becoming increasingly prevalent. MRI in acute ACL injuries is particularly useful for identifying associated injuries that will influence the early management of the patient. The aim of this paper is to describe the MRI findings of acute ACL tears, their commonly associated, and less common but serious associated injuries. Where available, the evidence for the sensitivity and specificity of these MRI features is presented. The contribution of these MRI findings to the management of the patient is discussed.
