  • Figure 1
    Knee, axial T2-WI

    Synovitis with hydrops of the joint.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Knee, axial T2-WI;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Knee, axial T2-WI

    Thickened synovium and intra-articular effusion with a much lower signal intensity.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Knee, axial T2-WI;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Knee, sagittal T1-WI

    There is a large erosive lesion at the anterior aspect of the femur with slihgtly enlarged lymph nodes in the popliteal fossa.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Knee, sagittal T1-WI;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Knee, coronal T1-WI

    Luxation of the remnants of a partially destructed meniscus.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Knee, coronal T1-WI;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Knee, sagittal T2-WI

    Areas of increased signal intensity within the cortical and medullary bone, suggestive for osteomyelitis.
