Knee effusions are common in mechanical and inflammatory arthropathies. Increasingly it has been recognized that removal/reduction of joint effusionsplay a key role in improving pain and dysfunction at the knee joint, enabling rehabilitation and recovery. It may be possibleto use disease modifying agents to treat knee joints with OA infuture. This projectlooks at differentmethods (clinical, imaging)used to measure the presence and size of joint effusions. The study aims to validate these methods, and compare them.
