Radiologist Report

(I've transcribed this from the fax my PT received)

MR Findings:

The medial and lateral menisci apppear satisfactory. These is disruption of proximal fibers of the anterior cruciate ligament in association with increased T2 weighted signal consistent with a tear. Collapse )

Impression:

1. Complete promimal anterior cruciate ligament tear.
2. Small poserior-medial juxta-articular ganglion cyst.
3. Moderate size joint effusion.

(There may be some typos and misspellings, as the fax isn't very clear and I just touch-typed it quickly. I don't quite know if this means they think my ACL is completely torn, partially torn, or they are unsure. Either way, it's not the diagnosis I was hoping for. Now I have to talk to the knee-doc again, see what he thinks.)
