Conditions Treated by Therapeutic Radiologists

Shinbone Fracture
A shinbone fracture is a break in the tibia (shinbone). The lower leg has two bones that connect the knee to the ankle: the tibia and the fibula. The tibia is the larger of the two bones and runs on the inside of the lower leg. The fibula is much smaller and runs along the outside of the lower leg.

Rib Fracture
A rib fracture is a break in a rib bone. Bruised muscles and ligaments often happen with a rib fracture. More seriously, the lungs and other organs can be injured. More than one rib fracture after a Trauma can indicate serious internal injury.

Pulmonary Embolism
A pulmonary embolism is a blockage of an artery in the lungs. It is caused by a clot that travels through the bloodstream to the lungs. Once the clot is stuck in a lung artery, it blocks the blood from nourishing that lung. The tissues on the other side of the blockage may die if it doesn't receive enough blood from other sources. The lung may become damaged and stop working properly. In severe cases this can lead to death.

Femoral Fracture
A femoral fracture is a break in the thigh bone, which is called the femur. The femur bone is also known as the thigh bone. It runs from the hip to the knee and is the longest and strongest bone in the body. It usually requires a great deal of force to break the femur.

Elbow Sprain
An elbow sprain is stretching or tearing of the ligaments that stabilize the elbow. Ligaments are strong bands of tissue that cross joints and connect bones to each other.

Clavicle Fracture
A clavicle fracture is a break in the clavicle bone (also called the collarbone). It connects the sternum (breastplate) to the shoulder.

The clavicle can fracture in three different places: Middle third-the middle portion of the clavicle, which is the most common site for a clavicle fractureDistal third-the end of the clavicle connecting to the shoulderMedial third-the end of the clavicle connecting to the sternum

Breast Cancer
Breast Cancer is a disease in which cancer cells grow in the breast. Normally, the cells of the breast divide in a regulated manner. If cells keep dividing when new cells are not needed, a mass of tissue forms. This mass is called a tumor. A tumor can be benign or malignant.

Sacral Stress Fracture
A sacral stress fracture is a small break in the sacrum. The sacrum is a large triangular bone. It is the base of the spine and connects to the pelvis. Spondylolysis fracture specifically affects the back thinner side of the bone.

Sesamoid Fracture
A sesamoid is a type of bone that is found within a tendon. Sesamoid fractures most commonly refer to the bones located under the big toe. These small bones allow smooth movement of the feet. These are the least common fractures of the forefoot.

Skull and Facial Fracture
Skull and facial fractures are broken bones of the head and face.

There are two major types of skull fractures:

Open skull fracture-part of the scalp is torn Closed skull fracture-the scalp is intact Facial fractures can occur in any of the face's bones. This includes:
