Updated April 16, 2014

Definition: The McMurray test is used to detect a meniscus tear in the knee. The McMurray test is performed with the patient lying down flat and the examiner bending the knee. A test is considered positive when a click is felt over the meniscus as the knee is brought from full flexion (completely bent) to 90 degrees of flexion.
