Caption: Bone death. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the profile of the knee of a male patient with severe osteonecrosis (bone death). The bone at top centre is the femur (thigh bone), with the tibia (shin bone) at bottom centre. The patella (kneecap, dark blue) is at centre left. The dead area of tissue (dark patch surrounded in white) is in the femur. The bone death results from a loss of blood flow to the area, known as an infarction. Osteonecrosis causes causes pain and swelling. Treatment is with pain relief and exercise. In severe cases, surgery may be needed to remove the dead tissue or replace the joint.
