Context: Ultrasonography (USG) is a noninvasive imaging modality used for the assessment of the musculoskeletal system. The knee is one of the joints which can be extensively explored with ultrasound due to the presence of wide acoustic windows, which allows easy visualization of different anatomical structures. Aims: The aim of the study was to find out the common diseases causing knee pain and to characterize the sonographic features of each cause. Subjects and Methods: In a cross-sectional observational study conducted in Acharya Vinoba Bhave Rural Hospital of JNMC College, Sawangi, Wardha, after obtaining ethical committee clearance, 100 patients who presented with knee pain were evaluated with sonography during a period of 2 years. Results: The most common age group in this study was 31–40 years, followed by 41–50 years. The most common sonographic diagnosis was osteoarthritis, followed by joint effusion and Baker's cyst. Conclusions: USG is an excellent modality for the evaluation of knee pain, which is free of ionizing radiation, and its easy availability and affordability makes it a preferred modality of choice.
