The tibia is the shin bone.
Between the tibia and femur is the meniscus, which accommodates the rounded ends of the femur and the flattened top of the tibia. The two cruciate ligaments reach between the two bones right in the centre of the knee.
The tibial plateau
The flattened top of the tibia is known as the tibial plateau.
In this X-ray of the tibial plateau you can see the central tibial spines where the cruciate ligaments (which do not show on X-ray) attach. Equally the two menisci cannot be seen on an X-ray, appearing only as a 'gap' between tibia and femur.
