How will my doctor diagnose a torn meniscus?

The most common ways that doctors diagnose a torn meniscus is through the use of an MRI. This normally happens after a physical exam in which the doctor will examine the pain and swelling in your knee. Sometimes a doctor may also perform an x-ray or ultrasound to further understand the cause of the knee pain and swelling. IN extreme cases, doctors may need to use an arthroscopic camera to fully diagnose the injury and torn meniscus.
