Kinematic Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Evaluation of Patellar Tracking



Kinematic Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Evaluation of Patellar Tracking



Physician and Sportsmedicine 17(9): 99-108



In brief: Kinematic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the patellofemoral joint was r developed to evaluate patellar tracking abnormalities. This technique has several advantages over radiography, eg, it does not expose the patient to ionizing radiation, and it clearly defines the patella and the femoral Cochlea groove without distortion. It also shows the movement of the patella in relation to the trochlea groove at 5° increments of knee flexion up to 30°. This case report demonstrates the value of kinematic MRI in diagnosing excessive lateral pressure syndrome (a frequent cause of knee pain), which cannot be detected by conventional diagnostic 'Paging techniques.
