Abstract

MR imaging is a safe, widely available radiologic modality that, because of its multiplanar capabilities and unparalleled soft tissue depiction, has become the imaging test of choice for noninvasive evaluation of ACL injuries. An understanding of the normal and abnormal MR imaging appearances of the ACL as well as the secondary changes commonly associated with ACL tears is necessary for accurate diagnosis. Several potential pitfalls and limitations of the MR imaging evaluation of the ACL exist, and these too must be realized to use the technology appropriately and to the maximum benefit of the patient.
