What is this mean. I have yet to speak to the doctor
MEDIAL COMPARTMENT: Allowing for motion artifact, the medial meniscus appears intact. Articular cartilage and marrow signal are normal. The MCL is intact.
LATERAL COMPARTMENT: Allowing for motion artifact, there is fraying to the lateral meniscal posterior horn free edge, and the posterior root is diminutive. Superficial chondral fibrillation is present at the posterior meniscal surface of the tibial plateau without subchondral remodeling. Intact lateral collateral ligament complex and structures of the posterolateral corner.
INTERCONDYLAR NOTCH: The anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments are intact.
PATELLOFEMORAL COMPARTMENT: Normal alignment. Articular cartilage appears preserved, and subchondral marrow signal is normal. Intact quadriceps and patellar tendons. Intact retinacula.
MISCELLANEOUS: No effusion or popliteal cyst.
Mild free edge fraying at the posterior horn lateral meniscus with subjacent shallow chondral fibrillation in the posterior LTP.
