X-Ray, MRI & Knee Kinesiography: What scan is best for knee pain?
Knee Kinesiography is a medical exam on a treadmill. This specific knee assessment helps healthcare professionals to better understand the causes of knee pain.
Knee Kinesiography collects patient data to analyze knee function, much like the EKG for the heart. This allows you to know the state of the knee’s function by capturing its movement and making it possible to understand the deficits.
What Is the Difference Between X-ray or Magnetic Resonance (MRI) ?
The following points clarify and emphasize the difference between radiography, MRI, and a knee assessment with KneeKG™:
- Radiography provides a static image of the bones
- MRI provides a static image of the soft tissue
- Knee Kinesiography analyzes the function (movements) of your knee while the patient is walking
The Knee Kinesiography with the KneeKG™ System
is a brief in-clinic exam that accurately assesses movement of the knee while the patient is walking on a treadmill. IT IS TO THE KNEE WHAT AN EKG IS TO THE HEART. It demonstrates exactly how the joint is functioning. The exam provides insight into the causes of the knee symptoms in patients with knee osteoarthritis, ligament injuries, anterior knee pain and other forms of knee problems, including residual pain after surgery.

Do you suffer from knee pain?
GO BEYOND management of symptoms
Address causes of knee pain with the right information!
- Knee pain is correlated to mechanical deficits
- There is no or poor correlation between pain & X-ray
Knee Kinesiography with the KneeKG™ system offers a way to understand what is happening with the patient’s knee in order to better identify causes of symptoms.
