OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to review the radiographic and MRI findings of bisphosphonate-related femoral periosteal stress reactions to propose a scoring system for predicting symptoms and fracture risk. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective study included patients undergoing long-term bisphosphonate therapy who had radiographic evidence of focal femoral periosteal thickening on radiographs and MR images. There were 43 femoral periosteal stress reactions in 33 patients; eight… CONTINUE READING
