Objective: This study was aimed to determine anthropometric measurements of knee joint among healthy Mongolian population and identify FML (Femur Medial Lateral), TML (Tibia Media Lateral), PML (Patella Medial Lateral), PAP (Patella Anterior Posterior), FAP (Femur Anterior Posterior) and TAP (Tibia Anterior Posterior). Methods: This cross-sectional study included 100 participants. We measured femoral, tibial and patellar dimensions using X-ray. Result: A total of 100 participants (44 male, 56

Average TML in male was 85.6 ± 1.27 mm and 79.1 ± 0.8 mm in female. Average TAP was 60.1 ± 4.87 mm in male and 55.7 ± 4.96 in female. Average PAP was 22.5 ± 2.83 mm in male and 23.8 ± 2.43 mm in female. Average PML was 50.2 ± 1.45 mm in male and 46.8 ± 4.09 mm in female. Knee anthropometric measurements were statistically different in gender (P < 0.0002). Conclusion: Participants average FML was statistically lower than Asian and European people and FAP was statistically higher than them.
