Title:
Natural evolution of popliteomeniscal fascicle tears over 2 years and its association with lateral articular knee cartilage degeneration in patients with traumatic anterior cruciate ligament tear. 
Abstract:
OBJECTIVES: To assess (i) normal imaging anatomy of the popliteomeniscal fascicles, (ii) prevalence and natural evolution of popliteomeniscal fascicle tears (PMFT) in subjects with traumatic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears over 2 years and (iii) compare knee cartilage degeneration in subjects with and without PMFT longitudinally. METHODS: 57 subjects with ACL tears were screened for PMFT. Morphological (high-resolution 3D fast spin-echo) and compositional (T1ρ and T2 mapping) MR imaging w...    »
