What is X-RAY BOTH KNEE SKYLINE VIEW?
The knee skyline Laurin view is an inferior-superior projection of the patella. It is one of many different methods to obtain an axial projection of the patella.
Indication
This view is used in trauma to assess for a patellar fracture or subluxation and in orthopedics for patellofemoral joint disease. It is best suited to patients able to maintain a semi-recumbent position on the examination table.
Patient position
  • the patient is semi-recumbent on the table holding a detector superior of the patella in the landscape orientation
  • patient's feet should be very close to the tube side of the bed (see technical factors)
  • the knee is bent close to 30°
  • often a pillow or cushion should be placed behind the patient to assist them in maintaining this position
Technical factors
  • Inferior-Superior Axial Projection
  • Centering point
    • the central ray will be angled 160° from the vertical axis (or 30° from horizontal), shooting inferior-superior towards the patella. This will require the tube to lay below the level of the examination table; hence the patient should be as close to this end of the table as possible.
    • the apex of the patella
  • Collimation
    • laterally to include the skin margins of the knee
    • inferior to include the femoropatellar joint space
    • superior to include medial skin margin
  • Orientation
    • Landscape
  • Detector Size
    • 18 cm x 24 cm
  • Exposure
    • 60-70 kVp
    • 7-10 mAs
