Figure 13: Illustration of femoral trochlear articular cartilage. (a) Normal contour, (b) double contour, the inner bright line corresponds to normal cortical outline and the outer bright line (arrow) is formed by gout crystal desposits over the surface of articular cartilage. Note the irregular outline of the outer bright line, and (c) deposition of CPPD crystals within the articular cartilage (arrow) as seen in chondrocalcinosis
