Musculoskeletal “don’t touch” lesions: pictorial essay
They are sclerotic foci that extend to the bone trabeculae, which gives them spiculated margins (). Due to their high calcium content, they present marked hypointense signals in all MRI sequences. Although small bone islands should not be confused with malignant sclerotic lesions, they merit invasive investigation if they show accelerated growth, defined as a ≥ 50% increase in their diameter
The Sclerotic Vertebral Body
A VARIETY of disorders can produce increased radiodensity, or sclerosis, of one or more vertebral bodies. Such sclerosis can involve (1) the entire vertebral body in a uniform fashion, (2) the superior or inferior surface, or both, (3) the vertebral margins, or (4) the interior of the bone. In each

· The bone scan sclerotic multiple myeloma may show a localized area of increased radiotracer uptake, or a “superscan” similar to that of diffuse metastatic disease (6). MR images typically have decreased signal intensity on T1-weighted and T2-weighted images, whereas classic, lytic multiple myeloma has decreased signal intensity on T1 and increased signal intensity on T2 (3).
Radiological review of skull lesions
· These lesions may coalesce into larger osteolytic segments. The disseminated form with diffuse osteopenia is less frequently encountered in the skull. Similarly, CT will show multiple lytic foci without a sclerotic rim [2, 5, 6, 40, 42]. Plasmacytoma, which2, 40].
Bone Metastases – Lytic versus Blastic
· Bone metastases: Sagittal CT of the thorax in bone windows shows multiple sclerotic and lytic foci within the thoracic spine vertebral bodies (arrows). This patient had metastatic lung cancer to the bones. Bone metastases are classified as either blastic or lytic:
innumerable tiny sclerotic foci throughout many of the imaged bones. However, the vertebral bodies and ribs were not noted to have any lesions. DIAGNOSIS >Osteopoikilosis. The differential diagnosis includes osteoblastic bone metastasis
Otosclerosis is a condition of the inner ear where one or more foci of irregularly laid spongy bone replace part of normally dense enchondral layer of bony otic capsule in the bony labyrinth.
