See details: The radiologist will review and comment on the entire knee area including bone, cartilage, ligaments, meniscus and soft tissues

See it all: The radiologist will examine all parts of the knee (or at least they should). The knee is a big continuous space on the inside. Contrast paints the inner surface and helps highlight more subtle injuries. When reading an MRI, attention is paid to all the anatomy, not just the areas of pain or interest.

The Radiologist will read the entire study.
