Abstract

Despite the advances in other imaging techniques, the plain radiograph remains the most important radiological method for diagnosis in bone. Variations in bony appearances are common and it is important to identify the normal as well as to interpret the abnormal. Observations from the X-ray about the rate of growth of a lesion serve to supplement the histopathological findings.
