MRI remains the most useful noninvasive test for diagnosis of meniscal tears. Knowledge of normal anatomy and familiarity with patterns of meniscal tears are prerequisites when interpreting MRI studies of the knee. Radiologists should pay close attention to technical factors, normal variants, and associated abnormalities to maintain high diagnostic accuracy. Details of meniscal tears should be described as to best aid in orthopedic decision-making.
