Patient
male, 35 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Fluid-filled structure behind the kee

    This ultrasound image demonstrates a fluid collection posterior to the knee

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Fluid-filled structure behind the kee;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Contrast leaking out of knee joint

    Arthrography causes contrast to be forced into the cyst and tracks inferiorly, demonstrating the tear

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Contrast leaking out of knee joint;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Axial T2W image showing Baker's cyst

    Axial T2W imaging shows the high signal fluid collection between the tendons of gastrocnemius and semimembranosus.
