The Segond fracture, avulsion fracture of the anterior tibial spine, impacted lateral femoral condyle fracture, and fracture of the posterior lateral tibial plateau are radiographic signs often associated with ACL injury.

In this Plain film segond fracture and avulsion fracture of tibial spine are evident.
