Comparison of radiographic subchondral bone changes with arthroscopic findings in the equine femoropatellar and femorotibial joints: a retrospective study of 72 joints (50 horses)



Comparison of radiographic subchondral bone changes with arthroscopic findings in the equine femoropatellar and femorotibial joints: a retrospective study of 72 joints (50 horses)



Veterinary Radiology and Ultrasound 36(6): 478-484



Radiographs of 72 femoropatellar and femorotibial joints from 50 horses were evaluated. 94 arthroscopically evaluated areas were graded according to a predetermined system. The radiographic grade was then compared to arthroscopic findings in the same location. 40% of radiographically normal areas in the femoropatellar joint were arthroscopically positive for cartilaginous changes.
