11) While a clinical diagnosis grounded in a detailed history and physical is the key to this pathology, ultrasound and imaging can provide helpful clues in evaluation of the posterior osteophyte
and effusion (Figure 16).
They cause osteophyte
formation (small bony projections) that irritate the joint structures, as well as arthritic changes, and increase calcium infiltration along these joints.

Classic radiographic features "are focal joint space narrowing, osteophyte
, subchondral bone sclerosis, and subchondral cysts.
resection and humeral head sizing was done entirely through the rotator interval.
Moderate peripheral osteophyte
formation is present particularly in the medial condyle.
The horizontal axis rates radiographic changes on a scale of 0-3, with 0 being normal, 1 indicating joint-space narrowing, 2 indicating osteophyte
formation, and 3 indicating bone-on-bone findings.
PET/CT localizes with greater precision compared with a low-spatial-resolution PET, easily distinguishing an osteophyte
in the thoracic spine or recent rib trauma from a peripheral lung lesion (Figure 22).
2] OA is caused by inflammation of the soft tissue and bony structures of the joint which worsens over time and leads to progressive thinning of articular cartilage, narrowing of the joint space, synovial membrane thickening, osteophyte
formation and increased density of subchondral bone.
Currently, surgical options include allograft resurfacing, arthroscopic debridement and osteophyte
resection, joint distraction arthroplasty, supramalleolar osteotomy, total ankle replacement, and ankle arthrodesis.
