Knee pain encompasses a wide array of differential diagnoses and can often pose a diagnostic challenge, as it can have traumatic or non-traumatic causes. A good clinical history, assessment and anatomical knowledge gives a strong foundation to narrow down the diagnosis, and understanding the correct imaging modality and findings further informs correct and timely management. This article reviews various disease processes including fractures, inflammatory, infective and neoplastic causes, and discusses the assessment and various imaging modalities to aid diagnosis in both primary and secondary care.
