Boomerang sign (knee)

Last revised by Dr Daniel J Bell on 23 Apr 2019

The boomerang sign is defined as a small displaced flap from a longitudinal horizontal type medial meniscal tear which is displaced inferiorly into the medial meniscotibial recess. The imaging diagnosis of this type of tear is crucial because it is normally hidden from the surgeon during routine arthroscopy.
