Abstract

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is the most commonly performed joint replacement procedure in the United States and annual demand for primary TKA is expected to grow by 673% by 2030. The first part provides an overview of imaging modalities (radiographs, CT, MRI, ultrasound, and various nuclear medicine studies) and discusses their usefulness in the imaging evaluation of TKA. The second part focuses on evidence-based imaging and imaging-guided intervention algorithms for the workup of TKA and its complications, including routine follow-up, component wear, periprosthetic infection, aseptic loosening, granulomas/osteolysis, conventional and rotational instability, periprosthetic fracture, patellar complications, and a variety of periprosthetic soft tissue abnormalities. The American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria are evidence-based guidelines for specific clinical conditions that are reviewed annually by a multidisciplinary expert panel. The guideline development and revision include an extensive analysis of current medical literature from peer reviewed journals and the application of well-established methodologies (RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method and Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation or GRADE) to rate the appropriateness of imaging and treatment procedures for specific clinical scenarios. In those instances where evidence is lacking or equivocal, expert opinion may supplement the available evidence to recommend imaging or treatment.
