353 Possible Causes for Radiolucency of the Bones

  • Osteoporosis

    The main radiographic features of generalized osteoporosis are cortical thinning and increased radiolucency.[en.wikipedia.org] However, radiography is relatively insensitive to detection of early disease and requires a substantial amount of bone loss (about 30%) to be apparent on X-ray images.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Familial Paget's Disease of Bone

    X-rays may show a number of signs: Both osteolysis (seen as radiolucency) and excessive bone formation occur.[patient.info] Osteoblastic activity lags behind; thus, radiolucent fibrous tissue replaces normal bone.[emedicine.com] Paget disease usually begins at the end of a bone, except when it occurs in the tibia.[emedicine.com]

  • Osteomalacia

    Fuzzy, cup-shaped diaphyses (ends of the bone) General increase in radiolucency of the bone Osteomalacia Reduced amount of cortical bone Partial fractures Treatment Vitamin[almostadoctor.co.uk] A radiographic study may show cortical stress fractures, often called Looser zones or pseudofractures, which are seen as bilateral, symmetric, radiolucent lines in the bone[nejm.org] Rickets Changes most easily seen at the ends of the radius and ulnar Ragged bone edges Apparent increased distance from arm bones to carpal bones (Due to demineralisation[almostadoctor.co.uk]

  • Osteitis Deformans

    X-rays may show a number of signs: Both osteolysis (seen as radiolucency) and excessive bone formation occur.[patient.info] Late - increased bone density, increased microfractures, loss of distinction between cortex and medulla; may have sharp demarcation between normal and affected bone; may[pathologyoutlines.com] […] founders of pathology Diagnosis Xray, elevated serum alkaline phosphatase and urinary hydroxyproline (normal serum calcium and phosphorus) Radiology description Early - radiolucency[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Bone Cyst
