What does a medial mensicus displacement look like on an mri? Does the mensicus act like a sock absorber?

In brief: Medial meniscus

On MRI the medial meniscus is a bright flat area between the femur & tibia.
Displacement means 'shifted or moved' by injury. The meniscus fibro-cartilage acts like a stabilizer keeping the femur in line with the tibia plateau and is also a 'shock absorber'.
