CT Arthrogram of Knee to Rule Out Meniscal Tear

A patient presented with knee pain, leading to a suspected chondromalacia patella or a meniscal tear. The patient did not want an MRI due to severe claustrophobia. Therefore, a CT Arthrogram was performed. Fluid injected into the knee appears bright white on the CT (below). This allows the Musculoskeletal Radiologist to evaluate for a meniscal tear or chondromalacia.
