  • Figure 1
    Facial image

    Multiple pigmented moles noted on the face in a case of Turner syndrome (Yellow arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: Soft tissues / Skin; Imaging Technique: Image manipulation / Reconstruction; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Genetic defects;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Survey of both hands
     

    Both hands show small fourth finger in a case of Turner syndrome.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal bone; Imaging Technique: Image manipulation / Reconstruction; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Genetic defects;

    X-ray both hands AP view shows classic positive metacarpal sign i.e. short fourth metacarpal in both hands (Orange arrows) in Turner syndrome.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal bone; Imaging Technique: Digital radiography; Procedure: Screening; Special Focus: Genetic defects;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Survey of both feet
     

    Both feet demonstrate short fourth and fifth toes in a case of Turner syndrome.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal bone; Imaging Technique: Image manipulation / Reconstruction; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Genetic defects;

    X-ray both feet AP view demonstrates short fourth and fifth metatarsals in Turner syndrome. Linear striated trabaculae are also noted in the visible bones (Red arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal bone; Imaging Technique: Digital radiography; Procedure: Screening; Special Focus: Genetic defects;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    X-ray AP view of bilateral knees

    X-ray both knees, AP view shows bilateral bowing and widening of medial femoral epicondyles (Red arrows) and linear striated trabeculations in the visible bones (Green arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal bone; Imaging Technique: Digital radiography; Procedure: Screening; Special Focus: Genetic defects;
