The physician examines your child's joint, looking for
• decreased range of motion
• pain along the joint line
• fluid on the knee
• abnormal ailment of the bones making-up the joint
• ligament or meniscal injury
Because an articular cartilage injury is hard to diagnose, your child's doctor may also require:
• Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) - a diagnostic procedure that uses a combination of large magnets,
radiofrequencies, and a computer to produce detailed images of organs and structures within the body
• Arthroscopy – a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that inserts a small camera into the joint for the doctor
