- Degenerative changes of the articular cartilage with thinning and denudation as well as subchondral degenerative change; most evident at the medial tibio-femoral articulation with lateral femoral condyle subchondral 3.5 X 2.7 cm cystic lesion associated with extensive perilesional osseous oedema as well as a similar yet much smaller distal femoral intercondylar subarticular cystic lesion. Osteoarthritic changes with subtle marginal osteophytic lipping of the tibio-femoral and patella-femoral articulations.
- Degenerative tear of the posterior horn medial meniscus (PHMM) with an intra-mensical branching signal of increased signal intensity seen reaching the inferior articular surface.
- No definite lateral meniscal tear.
- Mucoid degeneration of the ACL which appears thickened with increased signal intensity alternating with its normal hypointense fibers.
- Intact fibers' continuity with normal MR signal of the posterior cruciate and collateral ligaments as well as the quadriceps tendon and patellar ligament.
- Moderate knee joint effusion with synovial thickening and frond-like synovial projections with high T1 signal and intermediate to high T2 signal as well as signal suppression in the FAT-suppression sequences.
- A small pes anserinus bursitis is noted. No Baker's cyst.
