What is a bubbly lesion?

What is a bubbly lesion?

Bubbly lesions of bone are common findings on skeletal radiographs. The long, otherwise difficult-to-recall differential diagnosis has led to the development of the classic mnemonic “fegnomashic,” which some have preferred to rearrange as “fog machines.”

What does cortical destruction mean?

Complete cortical destruction may be present in high-grade malignant lesions like osteosarcoma, Ewing sarcoma, and also in locally aggressive benign lesions. Ballooning is a particular type of cortical destruction, involves the destruction of the inner cortex and new bone formation outside cortex at the same time.

What are osteolytic bone lesions?

Also known as bone lesions or osteolytic lesions, lytic lesions are spots of bone damage that result from cancerous plasma cells building up in your bone marrow. Your bones can’t break down and regrow (your doctor may call this remodel) as they should.

What does a multiple myeloma lesion look like?

The classic radiographic appearance of multiple myeloma is that of multiple, small, well-circumscribed, lytic, punched-out, round lesions within the skull, spine, and pelvis. The pattern of lytic or punched-out radiolucent lesions on the skull have been described as resembling raindrops hitting a surface and splashing.

What do multiple myeloma lesions look like?

What causes soap bubbles?

The hydrophobic ends of the soap molecules crowd to the surface, trying to avoid the water, and stick out away from the layer of water molecules. As a result, water molecules separate from each other. The increased distance between the water molecules causes a decrease in surface tension, enabling bubbles to form.

What does myeloma look like on xray?

What is sclerosis on xray?

Copyrights © 2014 The Korean Society of Radiology Bone sclerosis is defined as “an abnormal increase in density and hardening of bone” according to Biology online. In our clinical practice, sclerotic bone lesions are relatively common to be found on plain radiographs or CT scans.

What are the scientific concepts you have Learnt through soap bubbles?

Answer. Bubbles provide the opportunity to study science concepts such as elasticity, surface tension, chemistry, light, and even geometry. Your students can engage in processes such as observation, experimentation, investigation, and discovery, simply by studying bubbles.

How is Codman triangle formed?

Codman’s triangle is the radiographic appearance of the rim of new subperiosteal bone which forms when a lesion such as a tumour lifts the periosteum away from the bone. The small triangle of bone is seen at the advancing margin of the lesion.

How to differentiate soap bubble on X-ray?

It’s a short post about differentiating bone tumors. Soap bubble appearance on X ray is expansile, eccentric vaguely trabeculated space having thin sharp defined sclerotic margins. Mostly seen in bone tumors and other bone lesions. On X ray they all appear same, only way to differentiate them is to know their location and other associated factors.

What causes epiphyseal lesion with soap bubble appearance in bone?

So if one see epiphyseal lesion with soap bubble appearance in mature bone, it has to be Giant cell tumor. GCT presents with other classical signs of Egg shell crackling on palpitations.

What is soap bubble appearance in neonatal necrotising enterocolitis?

Soap bubble appearance is an important classical radiological finding in neonatal necrotising enterocolitis. A high index of suspicion is needed in preterm babies. Early recognition of this finding and timely prompt intervention can significantly reduce mortality and morbidity.
