Lateral Discoid Meniscus
No idea: I have seen ( usually @ arthroscopy ) many cases of discoid meniscus( a cartilage which covers more of the top of the shin bone than it should). Discoid menisci( usually lateral) are prone to tearing. Most are trimmed and shaped @ arthroscopy to resemble a normal meniscus( unless they are repairable too). I am not familiar w/ the term you used. Sorry!( orthopedically). ...Read more
Unusual term: Not a typical radiologic term but means generally an incomplete or 'attenuated' discoid meniscus. Discoid meniscus are present @ birth and can cause symptoms if unstable or torn. A dm is a meniscal cartilage which covers more of the tibial plateau than normal( instead of the normal c - shape).Several different dm occur and are often seen incedentally @ knee arthroscopy.Best of luck! ...Read more

Grade 1 and 2 intrameniscal signal are tricky and have sometimes been associated with actual tears at arthroscopy. Or, your meniscus may be normal and your knee pain may be caused by something else. If your knee continues to hurt a lot, seek ortho advice. You might require arthroscopy to be certain. ...Read more
