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
