Figure 9 (A-C): Aspiration of intra-articular ganglia related to the cruciates: (A) Deep-seated ganglia related to the cruciates in the knee are difficult to visualize. Anterior cruciate ligament ganglion is seen as a hypoechoic intra-articular area (G) when scanned from the posterior aspect of the knee joint (B) Needle position can be confirmed within the ganglion and aspiration/fenestration is attempted till reduction in size or alteration in echogenicity is visualized as in (C). This is then followed by a steroid injection
