  • This knee shows thick growth plates that appear fuzzy. The bone near the joint is too wide. Here is an x-ray showing a pseudofracture (red arrow) from an adult who has x-linked hypophosphatemic rickets. This sign is seen only in osteomalacia, but not in many of the cases.
  • The screen illustration demonstrates one of the manifestations of acromegaly, a prominent, thickened heel pad.
  • Hypothyroidism is a condition of insufficient thyroid hormone and may be congenital or acquired. If the congenital form remains undetected for a few weeks after birth, cretinism is the result. Characteristic features of cretinism are short stature with a protruding abdomen, sparse hair, and coarse facial features with wide-set eyes, broad nose, and protruding tongue. The screen illustration is a lateral skull radiograph demonstrating cretinism.
  • The screen illustration is a CT image of the abdomen. The kidneys are labeled as "K" bilaterally. The white arrows point to a large adrenal adenoma, in this case, a functioning adenoma causing excess glucocorticoid hormones. The white arrowhead is pointing to the normal adrenal gland on the patient's right side. Other radiographic evidence of Cushing's syndrome is generalized osteoporosis, which can increase the risk of fractures, particularly vertebral body collapse
  • Inadequate secretion of insulin Most common type of DM Risk for developing it increase with age More common in women than me Diabetes and treatment is similar to DM 1
  • Autoimmune disorder most often caused by Graves’ Disease Thyroid gland secretes excess amounts of TSH Enlarged thyroid and protruding eyes Hyper and nervous Treatment includes medical management, surgical resection Administration of radioactive iodine
  • TH deficiency Primarily affects women over the age of 60 Commonly seen in PT’s with Hashimoto’s syndrome May be caused by iodine insufficiency Symptoms decreased energy levels, hot & cold intolerance, personality changes, weight gain Treatment is hormone replacement therapy
  • The screen illustration is a lateral projection of the lumbar spine. Note the striped appearance caused by sclerotic changes at the endplates of the vertebrae. This radiographic sign is termed "rugger jersey spine" and is indicative of hyperparathyroidism, especially in persons with associated renal failure.
