In brief: PE and MRI
The first step is checking for an acl injury is talking to the patient about their injury and doing a good physical exam of the knee (pe).
At this point, most skilled doctors will have a strong suspicion that the acl is torn. X-rays are usually done to make sure there isn't a bad bone injury. Often a MRI is obtained to confirm the diagnosis and look for other, associated injuries.
