Imaging—bone, digits A descriptive term for a semilunar erosion at the ulnar aspect of the distal radius, seen in patients with advanced rheumatoid arthritis and caused by spontaneous rupture of the digital extensors; the ‘scallop’ is often more prominent, as it may be rimmed by an osteosclerotic margin
Imaging—bone, vertebrae A descriptive term for a gouged-edge appearance of vertebrae in certain pathological conditions; when the scalloping is anterior, it may be due to pressure from an aneurysm. Posterior scalloping is associated with spinal tumours, neurofibromatosis or communicating hydrocephalus
