Hi and thanks for the query,
a good physical examination needs to be done, preferably by the orthopedic surgeon. The knee is a very complex joint, much used with various components requiring a good clinical skill to actually explore each of these lesions. A scan is only part of the diagnostic tools required for a proper evaluation and management.Other causes of knee pain such as inflammatory diseases and even infectious arthritis must always be considered during the evaluation process. Taking an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon is a very good idea.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
