Form of electromagnetic radiation.
Nuclear scanning test that identifies new areas of bone growth or breakdown.
Creates a 3-D image from multiple X-rays images.
Computed Tomography Scan (CT)
Measure the electrical impulses of muscles at rest and during contraction.
Allows analysis of fluid for signs of inflammation, bleeding, and infection.
Synovial Fluid Aspiration
Uses strong magnetic field. No radiation. Patients with some types of metal implants can not have.
Minimally invase surgical prodecure in which an examination and sometimes treats of damage of the interior of a joint is performed.
Elevated in many muscle diseases.
Serum Creatine Kinase (SCK).
Results when the skin is broken.
Skin is not broken at the fracture site.
A bone is broken to form two or more separate pieces.
Bone is only partially broken.
Single break in the bone in which the bone ends maintain their alignment and position.
The are multiple fracture lines and bone fragments.
When a bone is crushed or collapses into small pieces.
When one end of the bone is forced into the adjacent bone.
Result from a weakness in the bone structure. Example - during cancer.
Fracture result from repeated excess stress.
Occur in the skull when the broken section is forced inward on the brain.
Fracture across the bone.
A break along the axis of bone.
Fracture at an angle to the diaphysis.
Fracture that angles around the bone.
Fracture at the distal radius at the wrist.
Fracture of the lower fibula due to excessive stress on the ankle.
Fracture of the 5th metatarsal.
Forms in the medullary canal, under the periosteum, and between the ends of the bone fragments.
Form new cartilage.
The bone ends become splinted together by a _______.
