Back or Abdominal Pain? How to Differentiate an Active Osseous Disease from Chronic Degenerative Changes
In everyday practice, we see patients with a tense abdomen. It is not always easy to differentiate abdominal pain from back pain. An abdominal radiograph is the best way to approach this diagnostic challenge, but then, a lot of changes are visible in the vertebral column. It is important to be able to recognize if these changes in the vertebral column are relevant or not.This lecture provides a guide to differentiating a chronic, not active, degenerative change, from an active and aggressive bone lesion. This knowledge will not only help in the abdominal studies but also in orthopedic patients and on patients with possible neurological diseases affecting the vertebral column.
