- AKA "OSTEOSARCOMA" - The most common malignant bone tumor, with common sites being the distal femur, proximal tibia & the proximal humerus
- occurs when a direct force caused the bone to break
- gradually replaces red bone marrow in adult bones, functions as storage for fat tissue and is inactive in formation of blood cells
- a fracture in which only one side of the shaft is broken, and the other is bent
- aka soft spots- is a space between bones of an infant's cranium that is covered by a tough membrane
- process of removing a small sample of bone marrow from a selected site with a needle for the purpose of examining the specimen under a microscope
6 True/False questions
red marrow → dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry, this procedure measures bone densitrty more accurately than dual photon absorptiometry, takes less time, and emits less radiation to the patient.
lordosis → abnormal lateral curvature of the spine
scoliosis → an abnormal inward (forward) curvature of the vertebral column, aka swayback.
complete fracture → a break that extends through the entire thickness of the bone
bone scan → procedure in which a radioactive substance is injected intravenously and its uptake in bones is measured with a special scanning device
osteomalacia → predominantly in females; fragile bones, loss of bone density, decreased levels of estrogen and calcium.
