Narrowing of knee joint joint and patellofemoral joint space is seen more so in the medial tibiofemur space.

Impression.
Early osteoarthritis of both knee joints.

MRI Right knee
Findings:

Osteoarthritic changes noted as evidenced by Marginal Osteophytes from the condyles of Tibia, Femur with mild narrowing of Knee Joint spaces and altered signal intensity.

Minimal fluid noted in the knee joint and suprapatellar bursal spaces appearing hyperintense on T2, PDFS and hypointense on T1W sequences.

No synovial hypertrophy.

ACL and PCL are normal in size and alignment, however minimum irregularity and signal changes noted at the margins.

Lateral menisci is normal in size, shape and signal intensity.

Medial and lateral collateral ligaments are normal.

Muscles, Tendons and Neuro Vascular Structures around the knee joint are normal.

Patella and Patello Femoral Articulations are normal.

Hoffa's Fat Pad is normal.

Posterior horn of the Medial meniscus show small focus of altered signal intensity extending up to Capsular surface and it appears Iso to hyperintense on all sequences.
