Brief Answer:
Ct scan or arthroscopy.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
If you cant have MRI then CT scan with contrast is an option for you. Otherwise a good clinical examination can also help in diagnosing the ligament tears to some extent.
The other option you have is arthroscopy in which a direct view of all the ligaments can be had.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
