    Osteoarthritis

    Cardinal Features :

    Joint space narrowing: Joint space narrowing characteristically in osteoarthritis is asymmetric

    Sclerosis: should be present in varying amounts in all cases of DJD unless severe osteoporosis is present.

    Osteophytosis: osteophytosis should be prominent in DJD.Some osteophytes carry eponymous names such as at the proximal interphalageal joint (Bouchard nodes), distal interphalangeal joints (Heberden nodes)

    Geode: A geode (or subchondral cyst) is a well-defined lytic lesion in the periarticular surfaces.
