Mensicocapsular injury (ramp lesion) occurs in 9-17% of ACL tears. These injuries are a risk factor for instability and failure following ACL reconstruction. The far peripheral location has contributed to under-diagnosis during routine anterior-approach arthroscopy. While there has been increasing interest in the identification and treatment of these lesions in adults, there is a paucity of published data on children and the proposed MRI features lack specificity. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the performance of MRI criteria for identifying ramp lesions in children. Read More

The prevalence, imaging features, and etiologies of pediatric intra-articular soft tissue masses are not well described in the literature. Therefore, intra-articular masses can present diagnostic dilemmas for pediatric radiologists. The purpose of this study was to further evaluate pediatric intra-articular soft tissue masses. Our hypothesis was that intra-articular masses have a limited differential diagnosis and are mostly benign. Read More

Depending on the age of the patient, knee MRI may be a daunting exam. Physicians may have a higher threshold to order MRI in the pediatric setting compared to the adult setting. Few if any studies are available which attempt to predict the prevalence of MRI findings based on the patient’s presenting history in the sports medicine setting. Our objective was to determine the prevalence of knee pathology using MRI in two groups of pediatric patients: those with an acute event, and those with knee pain without history of acute event.
