MRI shows a complete ACL tear from the femoral attachment, ganglion cyst in the ligament. Need further investigation?
Ten days following a traumatic incident, one radiologist reviewing an MRI sees a complete ACL tear from its femoral attachment. Five months later and another MRI, another radiologist sees an intact ACL with signal abnormality in the middle and distal and a tiny intrasubstance ganglian cyst in the middle of the ligament . What to do? ... another MRI with a different radiologist?
I would have appreciated seeing both MRI scans before giving an opinion. I suggest you take the earlier MRI to the second radiologist and request an opinion and discussion of the same with your doctor.
Hope this helps
