Magnetic resonance imaging being a most advanced and non-invasive imaging modality is a gold standard imaging modality in the diagnosis of soft tissue injuries including the injuries of ligament and tendons because of its three dimensional approach.  Almost there are 360 joints in human body with the help of which we can move from one place to other, among them knee joint is the largest joint. It is a synovial joint of hinge variety which mainly allows flexion and extension. Knee joint is supported by a huge network of ligaments and tendons which provide a great strength and flexibility to the knee joint. Anterior and posterior cruciate ligament are the important stabilizing ligaments of the knee joint these two ligaments connects the tibia with femur. Injury or torn to them can cause a critical clinical conditions to the patients suffering from that injury. Injury to anterior cruciate ligament is more frequent as compare to other ligamentous injuries of the knee. Injury to ACL occurs mostly by sudden change in direction so because of which it affects the people who take part in different types of sports like basketball, soccer, baseball skiing. Female athletes are at higher risk of having ACL tear as compare to males. ACL tear should be treated properly because injury to it can cause a serious clinical conditions like it can cause the immobilization of the subject until it is treated properly. For the accurate treatment there should be most advanced and highly sensitive diagnostic approach which aids in the addition of accurate information regarding the location, grading and the condition of ACL tear either there is  complete or partial tear. Magnetic resonance imaging modality can diagnosis ACL tears with a high accuracy with the help of specific protocols which are more sensitive to soft tissue injuries.
