Lateral knee  
 

When taking a lateral knee film, flexion of 20 to 30 degrees is usually preferred because this position relaxes the muscles and shows the maximum volume of the joint space.

Identify the following:

1. femur

2. tibia

3. patella

4. fibula

5. femoral condyles

6. superior articular surfaces of tibial condyles
