  • Figure 1
    Synovial osteochondromatosis: anatomical part

    An image showing, on the posterior-medial side of the elbow, the presence of a huge articular tumefaction.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Synovial Osteochondromatosis: anatomyc part;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Synovial osteochondromatosis: radiographic findings

    A radiographic image of the anatomical part, showing the presence of several osteochondral bodies which are partly calcified and partly ossified.

  • Figure 3
     

    An MRI T1-weighted spin-echo sequence on the coronal plane, showing some osteochondral bodies, which are isointense at the bone marrow, others showing a signal void.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown;

    An MRI T2-weighted gradient-echo sequence image on the coronal plane, showing the osteochondral bodies, which are already showing a signal void in T1, maintaining these signal characteristics that show their...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown;

    An MRI T2-weighted gradient-echo sequence image on the axial plane and a fast inversion recovery image on the coronal plane, showing a slight synovial reaction associated to the distension of the articular recessions.
