BACKGROUND: It is very important to evaluate intraarticular knee pathologies carefully to make a proper diagnosis. The most important diagnostic tools are history-taking, physical examination including special knee tests, and radiology including magnetic resonance imaging. The purpose of this study is to make a comparison between physical examination and magnetic resonance imaging for intraarticular knee pathologies before knee arthroscopy which is accepted as the gold standard for these types of pathologies.
