Weight-bearing knee joint function test with various degrees of flexion

In Upright MRI, in addition to conventional knee-joint examinations, function tests can also be carried out in natural weight-bearing positions and with various degrees of flexion.

The images shown below were recorded in a patient who complained of stabbing pains on climbing the stairs. The symptoms disappeared when the knee was fully extended. Upright MRI highlighted patellar contusion with 60° flexion of the femoral condyle.
