Abstract

This study was motivated by the increasing MRI examination of the knee injury. Ligament injury of the knee joint is a complex problem in orthopedic surgery. Magnetitic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is the most advanced diagnostic modality for evaluating the abnormalities in the musculoskeletal system, especially abnormalities in the knee joint. 3D WATS is a pulse sequence for 3 Dimensional images with gradient echo technique T1 contrast combined with the Water Selective Excitation. The joint ligaments to be evaluated for this study were Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL). This study used descriptive with retrospective retrieval method. Sample of data were collected from patients who had been examined for MRI knee with clinical indication of trauma at Husada Utama Hospital within one year. There are 44 Patients received 3D WATS sequence images. Then the 3D WATS sequence was reconstructed for interpretation and evaluation of abnormalities reflected in ACL and PCL. Based on the results of the evaluation on ACL there were 25% normal, 25% partial tear, 36% completed tear, and 16% post operation. Whereas in PCL there were 57% normal, 18% partial tear, 16% completed tear, and 11% post operation. From these results, it can be concluded that the 3D WATS sequence could be used for evaluation of abnormalities in the ligaments of the knee joint especially in ACL and PCL.
