- A disease in which bones become abnormally soft due to decreased levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood (rickets)
- Is the 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 microsccope.
- Abnormal lateral (sideward) curvature of a portion of the spine.
- A generalized infection of bone and bone marrow resulting from a bacterial infection
- Most common benign bone marrow tumor, usually located within the bone marrow cavity
5 True/False questions
Dual photon absorptiometry → This procedure measures the bone density more accurately than the dual photon absorptiometry, takes less time, and emits less radiation to the patient.
Lordosis → Abnormal inward curvature of a portion of the spine, also known as swayback
Talipes equinovarus → Non metabolic disease of the bone. Out of control of the osteoclast. Uncommon, causing excessive destruction of the bone structure due to the overaction of the osteoclast.
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.
DEXA Dual energy x-ray absorptiometry → This procedure measures the bone density more accurately than the dual photon absorptiometry, takes less time, and emits less radiation to the patient.
