Flashcards in Rad L1: Introduction To Articular Disease Deck (8):
What are the general categories of joint disease?
What are the categories of degenerative disease?
-primary or secondary
-neutrophic joint (charcots joint)
-spondylosis vs spondylosis deformans
-intervertebral osteochondrosis (IVOC) vs. degenerative disc disease (DDD)
-arthrosis:facet, uncovertebral, costovertebral, costotransvers
-diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperstosis (DISH)
-ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL)
Categories of inflammatory disease?
-rheumatoid type (seropositive)
>juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA)
> inflammatory bowel (Enteropathic)
– Connecting tissue
>systemic lupus erythema toss (SLE)
> scleroderma– Progressive systemic cystosis
– Infection (septic arthritis)
What are the two categories of crystal disease?
– Metabolic (intra-articular)
calcium pyrophosphate deposition (CPPD)
– Metabolic (peri-articular deposition) hydroxyapatite deposition disease (HADD)
What are the Roentgen signs of degenerative joint disease?
– Non-uniform loss of joint space
– subchondral sclerosis
– subchondral cysts
– asymmetric distribution
What are the Roentgen signs of inflammatory joint disease?
– Periarticular soft tissue swelling
– uniform loss of joint space
– bone erosion
– subchondral bone destruction
– Juxtaaricular osteoporosis
What are the Roentgen signs of metabolic joint disease?
– Periarticular soft tissue mass
– well Marginated bone lesion
– preservation of joint space (if periarticular)
– overlapping degenerative/inflammatory findings
– intra/periarticular calcification
