  • Radioisotopic bone scan of the right humerus in a patient with pancreatitis shows a hot lesion, the result of revascularization, which is a part of the reparative process. (medscape.com)
  • tendon
  • It actually develops inside a tendon, and as such does not articulate with any other bone directly. (wordpress.com)
  • cortical
  • Furthermore, when viewed in profile (tangentially), the cortical margins of the bones constituting that joint should be parallel. (radiologyassistant.nl)
  • Studying this parallelism is easier when regarding the carpal bones as pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that all fit together, as opposed to tracing carpal bones by their outer cortical margins producing the outlines (figure). (radiologyassistant.nl)

  • Current treatments for patients with bone metastases are primarily palliative and include localized therapies (radiation and surgery), systemic therapies (chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, radiopharmaceutical, and bisphosphonates although the primary goal of the use of these therapies are often to address the disease itself), and analgesics (opioids and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).
