OBJECTIVE Synovial proliferation is difficult to detect on MR images when joint effusions are present. The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of MR changes in intracapsular fat pads (prefemoral, quadriceps, Hoffa's) as a sign of synovial proliferation in patients with knee effusions.
