  • Figure 1
    Sagittal T1-w

    MRI- It shows serpentine vessels and enlongated, lobulated infiltrative masses, hypointense on T1w (arrows), intra-articular, and with infiltration of the popliteal fossa and patellar tendon.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Haemangioma;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Sagittal T2w

    MRI- T2 fatsat- the arrows point to a hyperintense lobulated infiltrative lesion-haemangioma, intra-articular with infiltration of the cruciate ligaments.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal system; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemangioma;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Sagittal T2

    MRI- T2 fatsat- Intra-articular lesion with popliteal fossa extention and patelllar tendon infiltration (arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemangioma;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Coronal T2

    MRI- T2 fatsat- The images show a infiltrative hyperintense lesion with superficial serpentine vessels with flow voids (arrows), a signal of a high-flow lesion/phlebolliths.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemangioma;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Axial T2

    MRI- T2 fatsat- the arrows continue to show the mass extension, with serpentine vessels and infiltrative hemangioma in all knee compartments.
