5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Predominately in females, fragile bones, loss of bone density, decreased levels of estrogen and calcium.
  2. A malignant tumor of bones, common in young adults particularly adolescent boys
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. This procedure measures the bone density more accurately than the dual photon absorptiometry, takes less time, and emits less radiation to the patient.

  2. Pagets diseaseInvolves 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.

          

  3. Dual photon absorptiometryThis procedure measures the bone density more accurately than the dual photon absorptiometry, takes less time, and emits less radiation to the patient.
