On behalf of the Medical Advisory Committee for occupational diseases at the German Federal Ministry for Work and Social an interdisciplinary working group with medical experts in the field of casualty surgery, occupational health, orthopaedics, and radiology discussed the description of meniscopathy in the sense of the German occupational disease No. 2102. According to the medical guideline “Meniscopathy” of the German Society of Orthopaedics and Casualty Surgery (2015) meniscopathy is diagnosed clinically and radiologically by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The working group came to the conclusion that a bilateral, at least third-grade meniscopathy according to Stoller, in the posterior part of the inner meniscus should be required in the MRI.
