Radiographic Diagnosis (Synthesis):
Candidates were expected to provide a good description of the lesion’s features using the standard roentgen signs. Based on the location of the lesion, osteomyelitis was expected to be the top ranked differential as opposed to the classic central osteosarcoma. Given the breed there was expectation that the opportunistic fungi such as aspergillus and other more unusual fungi be considered.
