6 Multiple choice questions
- predominantly in females; fragile bones, loss of bone density, decreased levels of estrogen and calcium.
- The end of a long bone, attached to the shaft
- AKA "OSTEOSARCOMA" - The most common malignant bone tumor, with common sites being the distal femur, proximal tibia & the proximal humerus
- a fracture in which only one side of the shaft is broken, and the other is bent
- abnormal lateral curvature of the spine
- occurs when a direct force caused the bone to break
6 True/False questions
complete fracture → a break that extends through the entire thickness of the bone
hematopoiesis → predominantly in females; fragile bones, loss of bone density, decreased levels of estrogen and calcium.
bone marrow aspiration → procedure in which a radioactive substance is injected intravenously and its uptake in bones is measured with a special scanning device
osteomalacia → abnormal softening of bones caused by deficiencies of phosphorus or calcium or vitamin D; called Ricketts in children.
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.
yellow bone marrow → gradually replaces red bone marrow in adult bones, functions as storage for fat tissue and is inactive in formation of blood cells
