Distinction between the red and white zones of the meniscus of the knee is of considerable clinical importance. In this study we employed a 3D Cones sequence to allow display of images in any plane, and followed the subjects for over two hours post injection to determine the time course of enhancement. Demonstration of the red and white zones was dramatic, as was the progression of the extent of the enhancement over time.
