MRI of meniscus in a 6-year-old girl

Case Study
Chung, Taylor, M.D. Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland • USA

Patient history

In order to exclude the presence of discoid meniscus, a 6-year-old girl with knee pain underwent an MRI exam at Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland (CHRCO, Oakland, California, USA).

MR examination

The MRI examination was performed on Achieva 3.0T using mDIXON TSE.

Acquired voxel size 0.2 x 0.3 x 3 mm, 30 slices, in 3:11 min for each mDIXON TSE sequence with SENSE on Achieva 3.0T.

Diagnosis

MRI confirms that there was no discoid meniscus in this patient.

Clinical impact

After the first 10 minutes of scanning the patient started to move in the scanner. Coronal and sagittal mDIXON TSE were used to provide robust fat-suppressed and non-fat suppressed images and decrease the total examination time.
