Arch Orthop Trauma Surg. 1996;115(6):307–12. 1 Anatomy and Normal MRI Appearance The medial supporting structures of the knee can be divided into three layers [1]. Layer 1 consists of the deep crural fascia that is seen on MR images as a thin low-intensity structure on all MR sequences (Fig.

The MCL is beneath the deep crural fascia (layer 1), from which it is separated by a variable amount of fat (Fig. 1). The MCL is composed of the superficial layer (layer 2 of the medial supporting structures) and the deep layer (layer 3 of the medial supporting structures). The superficial layer of MCL (layer 2), also known as the vertical component of MCL, is about 12 cm long, 1–2 cm wide, and 2–4 mm thick and extends from its medial femoral epicondyle origin to its attachment at the tibial plateau, just posterior to the pes anserinus insertion (Fig.
