PMID:  15812708     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Clinical management of knee ligament injuries ranges from simple observation to complex multiligament reconstruction. Radiographic evaluation, including magnetic resonance imaging, is an important part of the diagnostic regimen that may significantly alter the treatment plan. This article reviews the clinical presentation and evaluation of isolated and combined knee ligament injuries and presents the indications, utility, and clinical impact of radiographic imaging on surgical management.
