Radiographically, endosteal and periosteal thickening of the diaphyses of long bones (Figs.
These changes include subperiosteal resorption of bone, affecting the following structures: diaphyses of the phalanges, phalangeal tufts, lamina dura, clavicular tip, clavicular surface at the coroclavicular ligament attachment, symphysis pubis, and sacroililac joints.
The shape of long bone diaphyses is influenced by bending (shear) and torsional loads (Ruff 1987), and the thickness of diaphyseal cortex in the axial plane forms a structure that is virtually impervious to fracture by a compressive load under normal circumstances (Cowin 1995).
1) The diaphyses of the femur, tibia, and humerus are also common sites of primary tumor involvement.
The tibial and femural diaphyses were scanned at the midpoint (50%; Figure 1) of the bone, because this area consists almost exclusively of cortical bone.
Under histologic examination of PNBF free of tumor, a blue cement line was frequently seen on Hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stains, separating the cortex from the periosteum in the femoral diaphyses, on both axial and coronal sections of the bone.
