They gave me two doctors to choose from and of course it was after hours when they called so I could not reach anyone but left a message of who I prefer they refer me to. I received the report via fax here is what it says:
Menisci: Gross;y abnormal. there is a complex area of high signal intensity seen predominantly along the inferior surface of the junction of the body and posterior horn of the medical meniscus. A superimposed apical tear at the body is also noted. The lateral meniscus is discoid having lateral dimension of 21mm. No tear is seen, despite its discoid configuration.
Cruciate Ligaments: Intact
collateral ligaments: Intact
Patellofemoral compartment: Patellar an quadiceps tendons are normal.
No significant effusion.
Joint spaces and articular surfaces: Fluid is seen in the lateral compartment. the articular cartilage is otherwise well preserved.
Periarticular soft tissues: fluid is noted in the popliteus tendon sheath, a non specific finding and usually representing a reservoid for joint fluid.
Other finddings: None significant
1) Complex tear involing the predominately the undersurface and apex of both the body and posterior horn of the meniscus as described in detail above.
2) Discoid lateral meniscus without a tear
3) Tenosynovitis of the popliteus tendon.
