Flourosis: Xray

Xray features of #flourosis includes
  1. increased bone density
  2. periosteal bone formation
  3. ossification of the attachments of tendons, ligaments, and muscles
  4. interosseous membrane calcification
  • This forearm xray shows classic increased bone density and calcification of the interosseous membrane.
  • Skeletal fluorosis  is endemic in India. 
  • Urinary fluoride levels are the best indicators of fluoride intake. Since fluoride concentration is not the same throughout the day,  24-hour samples of urine are more reliable.
