Second opinion: Is a good idea. An MRI can be submitted to http://conciergeradiologist.Com in the next month for reevaluation. One picture is not enough - the whole study will need to be sent, but fortunately that's not hard.

Seek another opinion: Mri's are not infallible. They can misread a condition one way or another between 15-50% of the time. If you have been told that there is nothing to worry about, and your knee tell you there is something wrong, then consider getting another opinion. Your doctor certainly wants you to be comfortable with his recommendations, so he should be comfortable with you getting some reassurance elsewhere.
