There were three cases of osteoarthritis showing superolateral space narrowing and osteophytes in all three (100%), articular erosion in 2 (67%), and subchondral cysts
in 2 cases (67%).
The Correlation Between Subchondral Cysts
and Bone Marrow Lesions
Figures (5)-AP with joint not closed and (6)-45[degrees] flexion PA with joint closed laterally) Make sure to document specific abnormalities on the radiographs with a particular emphasis on subchondral cysts
, subchondral sclerosis, periarticular osteophytes, and joint subluxation.
candy" appearance of metatarsal shafts, destruction of calcaneotalar articulation, subchondral cysts
Total knee replacement (TKR) is most commonly caused by osteoarthritis of the knee, and can result in loss of articular cartilage, subchondral bone sclerosis, bone spurs and degenerative subchondral cysts
An X-ray revealed degenerative changes of the humeral head, including subchondral cysts
and narrowing of the joint space.
2]-weighted and STIR sequences were evaluated as subchondral cysts
3,9) MR imaging of early osteonecrosis typically reveals a low signal intensity serpentine band surrounding a normal appearing epiphyseal area on T1 weighted images; while advanced cases reveal epiphyseal collapse, subchrondral fractures, and subchondral cysts
4-6) Typical plain radiograph findings of hemophilic knee arthropathy include a widened intercondylar notch, squaring of the patella, joint space narrowing, subchondral cysts
, osteoporosis, and accelerated degenerative changes.
Intraosseous ganglia when associated with osteoarthrosis may be difficult to divorce from large subchondral cysts
Classic radiographic features "are focal joint space narrowing, osteophyte, subchondral bone sclerosis, and subchondral cysts
form as synovial fluid is forced beneath the joint surface.
