In brief: A good exam then MRI

Although most people think a MRI is necessary to diagnose a torn acl, most knee specialists can tell from a couple of simple test that can be done.
With a high suspicion, a MRI is often then ordered and used then to confirm the findings of the exam. My suggestion for you is to see a md who is well trained and experianced in acl's and even revision surgery. Get their opinion.
