The place of arthrography in the diagnosis and management of meniscal injuries--a 6-year review.


Four hundred and eighty-seven consecutive knee arthrograms, performed over a 6-year period, are reviewed. Their accuracy is compared with arthroscopy and, where appropriate, with arthrotomy. The increasing accuracy of arthrography has resulted in the acceptance of this method of imaging as a useful and accurate means of examining meniscal injuries in the knee. This has led to far fewer surgical procedures and an overall saving of resources.
