Table 2 Evaluation of medial meniscus extrusion using MRI and comparison of MTE–MFC distance and medial joint space width using the Rosenberg view in the two groups

From: Preliminary diagnosis of medial meniscus posterior root tears using the Rosenberg radiographic view

  Group A Group B P value
Medial meniscus extrusion (range) 4.1 ± 1.1 (3.0–5.7) 1.8 ± 1.5 (0.2–2.0) < 0.05
MTE–MFC distance (range) 7.7 ± 1.7 (4.9–12.9) 6.0 ± 1.2 (2.9–7.4) < 0.05
     Difference between affected and contralateral knee (range) 2.2 ± 1.0 (0.9–4.6) − 0.1 ± 0.7 (− 1.7–1.4) < 0.05
Medial joint space width (range) 3.2 ± 0.8 (2.4–6.5) 4.5 ± 0.7 (3.8–7.0) < 0.05
     Difference between affected and contralateral knee (range) −1.3 ± 0.7 (− 0.4–-2.8) −0.1 ± 0.6 (− 1.7–0.6) < 0.05
  1. Data are presented as a mean ± standard deviation. Statistical differences were evaluated using the Student’s t test
