Knee ultrasonography is a feasible and useful diagnostic method not only for the evaluation of periarticular soft tissues but also for intra-articular lesions and for the diagnosis of tumorous disease. Joint effusion, synovial thickening, intra-articular loose bodies, bursal and/or other fluid collection, ganglionic cysts, ligament and tendon injuries, tendinosis, osteomyelitis, and symptoms related to metallic hardware can be diagnosed using ultrasonography.
