Medical Images of the Knee Joint seen on Color MRI and Color X-Ray Images

The Human Knee Joint can now be seen in Color. Conventional X-Ray and MRI Images how the Knee in Black and White. This makes it difficult for viewers without formal training in Radiology to appreciate the Anatomy of the Knee Joint and specific Medical and Surgical conditions.

Medical Media Images has created the technology to convert ordinary Black and White X-Ray, CT, and MRI Images into Color. These Images offer an entirely new way to see the Human Anatomy in Color. Previously medical color illustrations came closest to showing the Human Anatomy in Color. However, they lacked in authenticity since they are not based on real patients. This has been solved by the color conversion of Radiology Images.

Here are some examples. The first Image is a Color X-Ray of the Knee. This Image has Interactive Image Tags. As you move your mouse cursor over the Image, the Interactive Tags appear. Each tag displays text to explain a specific part of the Anatomy. If the Tags do no not load properly due to slow Browser Speeds, just refresh the Image.

The next Image is a Color X-Ray of a Total Knee Replacement. Notice how a Knee Replacement consists of two metal components, one on the bottom of the Thigh Bone (Femur) and one at the top of the larger of the two lower Leg Bones, the Tibia. A plastic core separates the two metal components. This "cushion" is not visible on an X-Ray. This Image is also Interactive.

The Image below is a Color MRI Scan of the Knee Joint, which shows the Joint from a side-view slice (sagittal) perspective. Notice the Kneecap (patella) on the left. The Meniscus is shown in Blue.

The next Image shows a similar slice as the one above, however in this one the ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) and PCL (Posterior Cruciate Ligament) can be seen. Both of these Ligaments help stabilize the Knee Joint, specifically when the Thigh Bone (Femur) moves forward or backward on the larger of the two lower Leg Bones (Tibia). This Image is also an Interactive Image with Tags.
