Although there was no correlation between clinical characteristics, imaging findings and Q-angles of all participants, we found correlations between the Q-angle measurements and cartilage grading by US (r = 0.435, p = 0.033), K-L grading (r = 0.435, p = 0.021) and medial femoral condyle thickness (r = -0.399, p = 0.036).
