      Hi, Steve.
      This was a 49-year-old male patient.
      He had direct trauma at medial knee one month ago.
      Both hyperechoic and hypoechoic area were observed at the injury site.
      I know that the hyperechoic area were swelling fat tissue.
      But what are the hypoechoic area? I have no idea.
      Looking forward to your reply. Thank you very much.

      Hi Xue,

      I think you are correct in thinking that the hyper echoic area is fat contusion.

      I suspect the hypechoic area is a combination of haematoma and fat necrosis in that sub-cut adipose layer following the trauma.
