= annotation - select to reveal
  1. A lateromedial radiograph of the caudal shoulder joint.
  2. The trachea is clearly visible.
  3. The caudal humerus and humeral head of the shoulder joint are visible. There is a deformity or flattening of the curve of the caudal humeral head with a lytic defect surrounded by a sclerotic bone margin.
  4. Opposite the humeral lesion there is a more subtle change in the outline of the caudal glenoid articular rim and thickening/sclerosis of the underlying subchondral bone plate.
  5. This is an example of an osteochondrosis lesion of the caudal humeral head and glenoid cavity.
