A member asked:

What does attenuated anterior crucial ligament mean?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Prior ACL injury: If the anterior cruciate ligament (acl) looks smaller, thinner or less robust than it should on an mri, it may be described as attenuated. Alternatively, this term may be used if the ligament seems a bit weak on physical examination. Either way, the suggestion is that there has been a prior injury or partial tear.
