Knee ultrasound

Ultrasound examinations of the knee are performed with the FRONT access above and below the patella, and the REAR approach. Both approaches are placed on the inner (medial) and outer (lateral) sides of the knee. This joint is one of the most searched joints in man.

Knee ultrasound shows and examines:

  • changes in the tendon of the m. quadriceps
  • pattel (bipartite, fracture)
  • patellar cartilage softening (chondromalacia)
  • patellar ligament
  • jumping knee
  • M. Osgood - Schlatter
  • medial collateral ligament injuries (stress imaging)
  • anterior cruciate ligament rupture (tibial plateau displacement)
  • the menisci are difficult to see with the infrapatellar approach and are better seen with the posterior approach, namely the posterior horns, with a 7.5 MHz probe
  • Hoff's adipose tissue
  • popliteal cysts (Baker) in rheumatoid arthritis, degenerative changes and
    bursa injuries (usually m. gastrocnemius)
  • cysts of the lateral meniscus
  • destruction of articular cartilage (in osteoarthritis)
  • Wiberg's corner
