MRT- and US-parallels in the assessment of intra-articular structures in patients with closed injuries of the knee

Бакарджиева А.Н., Дьячков К.А.

Abstract


MRT and US studies have been performed before and after arthroscopy in 26 patients at the age of 14-63 years with closed injuries of the knee. To compare the results and to determine US effectiveness during the knee structure evaluation the parameters were used, included in the standard protocols of studying patients with closed injuries. The results of the work demonstrated rather high US effectiveness for intra-articular injury diagnostics. As for comparative analysis, US use turned out to be the most advantageous for diagnosing the exudation into the articular cavity, for the assessment of the intactness of ligamentous apparatus, menisci, and Baker’s popliteal cysts.
