Table 4 Sensitivity and specificity of short-duration 3 T magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for the evaluation of meniscal rupture

From: Diagnostic accuracy of a short-duration 3 Tesla magnetic resonance protocol for diagnosing stifle joint lesions in dogs with non-traumatic cranial cruciate ligament rupture

Lateral meniscus   Surgery (rupture) Surgery (no rupture)
MR (rupture) 1 0
MR (no rupture) 0 20
Sensitivity (95% CI): 1.0000 (0.0250–1.0000)  
Specificity (95% CI): 1.0000 (0.8317–1.0000)  
  F: 0.0476  
Medial meniscus   Surgery (rupture) Surgery (no rupture)
MR (rupture) 17 0
MR (no rupture) 1 3
Sensitivity (95% CI): 0.9444 (0.7270–0.9986)  
Specificity (95% CI): 1.0000 (0.2924–1.0000)  
  F: 0.0030  
  1. CI = Confidence interval; F = Fisher’s exact test p value (statistically significant if p ≤ 0.05).
