  1. * Adapted from Martig et al. 2006; H = Hyperintensity (area[s] of intrameniscal increase of signal intensity that do not reach any surface); R = Rupture (a linear increase in intrameniscal signal intensity that penetrates the meniscal surface, complex signal changes or meniscal distortion); 0 = Low and homogeneous signal intensity.
