Figure 5 (A-B): Scapholunate and lunatotriquetral ligament tears in a 30 year old woman with wrist pain since 1 year. A defect is seen in the scapholunate ligament (bold arrow); TFC and the lunatotriquetral ligament (thin arrow) are apparently intact on coronal MEDIC image (A). However, coronal MR arthrogram image (B) shows a radial tear of TFC (open arrow) and a tear of the lunate attachment of lunatotriquetral ligament (thin arrow), with contrast extending into the gap and reaching into the midcarpal joint; scapholunate ligament tear is also well visualized (bold arrow). All the tears were confirmed on arthroscopy
