Hi there!

On the left side the MRI describes degeneration of the cartilage the lines the undersurface of the knee cap, with associated inflammation; and a cartilage defect on the left side with associated inflammation. Also there is slight mal-alignment/ displacement of the bones of the knee joint (subluxation), on either side.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!
