Bow Tie Sign

A sign seen on sagittal images, the bowtie represents the continuity of the meniscus between the anterior and posterior horns. It is normally seen on 2 contiguous sagittal images. When it is seen on 3 or more contiguous 5-mm thick sagittal images, it is indicative of a discoid meniscus
