Caption: This image is a computer generated reconstruction of the knee demonstrating a comminuted (multiple fragments) fracture extending through the tibial plateau which is one of the bones of the knee. The other major bone comprising the knee joint is the distal femur. A smaller bone the patella is the 3rd bone making up the knee. Computed Tomography (CT) or computed axial tomography (CAT) scans generate special types of images which utilize x-rays for their creation. CT scans obtain cross sectional images of different body parts. Complex fractures or fractures which are not adequately imaged by plain X-rays are better evaluated with CT scans. It is often helpful to determine if a fracture extends to a joint, as this information may alter the way a person is treated. This case illustrates a very severe fracture which does involve the knee joint.
