Correlation of clinical examination, ultrasound sonography, and magnetic resonance imaging findings with arthroscopic findings in relation to acute and chronic lateral meniscus injuries.

Purpose The aim of this study was to evaluate whether ultrasound sonography (USS) performed by orthopedic surgeons is a reliable method of investigating lateral meniscus (LM) knee lesions as compared to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and arthroscopy, which is the gold standard in clinical practice.

Methods In total, 107 patients were involved in this study. They were hospitalized for arthroscopy due to LM injury of the knee. Clinical examination (McMurray’s, Apley’s, and joint line tenderness tests), USS, and MRI were performed prior to arthroscopy. We compared the results of clinical examination, USS, and MRI with the arthroscopic findings for the knee, which were considered the reference values...
