Knee cartilage inflammation
Does an x-ray show inflammation of knee cartilage? Or can a doctor infer this based on an x-ray alone?
Is it possible to have inflammation without damage to the cartilage?

Xrays do not show inflammation. They may show the reslts of inflammation, such as arthritic changes, but not the inflammation itself.  Inflammation is usually diagnosed on a clinical basis, from history, pthe presence of swelling, redness, warmth and/or pain.
