2 Radiography Conventional radiographs (X-ray) are the initial radiologic study in most suspected knee disorders . Radiographs demonstrate joint spaces and bones, but are relatively insensitive to softtissue conditions (except those composed largely of calcium or fat), destruction of medullary bone, and early loss of cartilage. A minimum examination consists of an anteroposterior (AP) and lateral projection (Fig. 1). For the early detection of articular cartilage loss, a posteroanterior (PA) radiograph of both knees with the patient standing and knees mildly flexed is a useful adjunct projection (Fig.
