Contrast imaging: I take it that you have had a contrast imaging of the knee. The term means that there is a filling defect in part of the knee (probably cartilage) that was filled with the contrast material and that how it is shown on the image. Probably the defect is secondary to overuse of the knee.

Overuse uptake: It means you did not give me enough information to help. Is this a bone scan? An X-ray or what?
