MRI: Coronal knee (image 1 of 2)  
 

The next two MRIs show the knee in the coronal plane. This image is roughly in the middle of the knee joint, and the next image is more posterior. These images are T2-weighted, however the fat signal has been 'suppressed' making structures containing fat appear dark.
