The purpose of this study was to contrast the magnetic resonance imaging appearance of uninjured components of the posterolateral knee with that of injured structures, and to assess the accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging in identifying posterolateral knee complex injuries. Thin-slice coronal oblique T1- weighted images through the entire fibular head were used to identify the posterolateral structures in seven uninjured knees. The appearance of corresponding grade III injuries to these structures was identified prospectively in 20 patients and verified at the time of surgical reconstruction.
