An interarticular synovial cartilage or membrane; esp., one of the intervertebral synovial disks in some parts of the vertebral column of birds.
free rings of cartilage, like washers, lying between the cartilage- covered bones in the knee, acting as extra shock absorbers; each knee has an inside (medial) and outside (lateral) meniscus; these cartilages often get damaged in sport.
the crescent-shaped upper surface of a column of fluid
A cartilage disk that acts as a cushion between the ends of bones that meet in a joint.
The cartilage in the knee joint.
A cartilage disk that acts as a cushion or shock absorber between the ends of bones in certain joints. In the knee the disc on the inner side of the knee is called the medial meniscus, and the disc on the outer side is called the lateral meniscus.
A fibrocartilage pad between opposing surfaces in a joint.
a disk of cartilage that serves as a cushion between the ends of bones that meet at a point
a disk -shaped piece of cartilage that acts as a shock absorber inside a joint
a type of cartilage inside the joint of the knee, located between the shinbone (tibia) and thigh bone (femur)
The mensci are fibrocartilaginous structures that function as "washers" - to deepen the joint surfaces, shock absorbers, assist in joint lubrication and provide joint stabilisation. Often damaged, particularly in the knee, when there is a rotational force.

a disc-shaped pad of tough tissue, or cartilage, in the knee
The semi circular shaped fibrocartilage 'spacer' within the knee joint. Its function is to act as a shock absorber and increase the congruency of the knee joint.
The crescent shaped cartilage between the femur and tibia.
a part of the cartilage in the knees and other joints.
Crescent shaped cartilage, usually pertaining to the knee joint, also known as cartilage. There are the medial and lateral meniscus and they serve to absorb weight within the knee and provide stability.
Crescent shaped cartilage, usually pertaining to the knee joint; also known as cartilage. There are two menisci in the knee, medial and lateral. These work to absorb weight within the knee and provide stability.
Capsular cushion between temporomandibluar joint and glenoid fossa
The cartilaginous portion of the knee. There is both a medial (inner) and lateral (outer) meniscus. In a healthy individual, these act as frictionless surfaces to allow easy gliding of one bone on another. In disease states, there may be breakdown of this material. If injured, the meniscus may actually tear and cause problems with instability with locking and buckling with walking.
A soft padding that acts as a cushion or "shock absorber" between the ends of bones in some joints.
crescent shaped cartilage serving as shock absorber for the knee
Thin cartilaginous discs, found in the knee between the femur and the tibia, in the jaw between the mandibular condyle and fossa, that reduce friction. The menisci can be damaged by trauma or chronic stress. image Torn Meniscus
A crescentic cartilage (gristle) lying on either side (medial and lateral) of the upper end of the tibia (shin bone), cushioning the joint with the femur (thigh bone).
