5 True/False questions
DEXA Dual energy x-ray absorptiometry → This procedure measures bone density within 2-3% accuracy of the bone's actual density
Ewing Sarcoma → Also known as osteosarcoma; is most common malignant bone tumor with common sites being the distal femur, the proximal tibia, the proximal humerus.
bone scan → Involves the intravenous injection of a radioisotope, which is absorbed by the bone. After approximately three hours, the skeleton is scanned with a gamma camera (scanner), moving from one end of the body to the other. The scanner detects the areas where the bone absorbs the isotope and converts the radioactive image to a screen where the concentrations show up as pinpoint dots cast in the image of a skeleton.
Osteoporosis → A disease in which bones become abnormally soft due to decreased levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood (rickets)
Osteogenic Sarcoma → Also known as osteosarcoma; is most common malignant bone tumor with common sites being the distal femur, the proximal tibia, the proximal humerus.
