Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is a common indication for Magnetic Resonance imaging examination, the advancements in Magnetic Resonance imaging have provided the considerable potential for a one-stop shop radiation-free assessment with an all-in-one modality examination of the knee joint. The aim of this study is to the evaluation of the anterior cruciate ligament injury of the knee joint using magnetic resonance imaging. A study was performed to evaluate meniscal and anterior cruciate ligament injury of the knee using MRI. A total of 92 patients were examined in this study. The data was collected from two hospitals (King Salman Specialist Hospital and King Khaled) in the Hail region in Saudi Arabia from January 2022 to July 2022. The study found that (80.4%) of patients are male patients. The highest findings were found in the age groups ranging from 21-40 years old. The most common patient compiling was found knee injuries (31.5%) and the most common findings were ACL sprain (35.9%) and ACL tore. (29.3% ) MR has shown to be very useful in ACL insufficient or deficient and can detect many ACL and Meniscal abnormalities. Our data demonstrated that ACL sprain and ACL tearing the common abnormalities. The study concluded that MRI has a high sensitivity for the detection of ACL, meniscal, and articular cartilage in patients with knee injuries, and so plays a major role in determining the disease's diagnosis and management.
