Figure 10: Figure showed the injection technique. The ultrasound probe is placed between the patella and quadriceps tendon initially and then turn 90° upon visualization of the suprapatellar recess. The needle is then approach from lateral to medial to avoid puncturing the quadriceps tendon. The needle is indicated by the arrowheads and the suprapatellar recess by asterisks (****). R: Retinaculum, Q: Quadriceps tendon, F: Femur. Reproduced with permission from Philip Peng Educational Series
