Study: MRI preferred to confirm exam-based diagnosis of meniscal tear

February 25, 2015

Recently published data indicated the preferred and most cost-effective usage of MRI in the diagnosis of meniscal tears was as confirmation of a physical examiner’s diagnosis.

Researchers conducted a cost-utility analysis to determine the cost-effectiveness of both MRI and alternatives to MRI in combination with a patient’s physical history and examination as the primary tools to diagnose a meniscal tear. This model evaluated meniscal tears in both primary care and sports medicine clinic settings and compared all options via incremental cost-effectiveness ratio.
