Knee effusion: It means you have an abnormal amount of fluid in your knee joint. This is never normal and can come from a variety of problems but is usually from an injury to the ligaments of the knee. You need to ask the doctor who ordered this imaging study for more information about the cause of this problem and recommended therapy.
