The hemoglobinopathies are associated with characteristic abnormalities of the skeleton. In general, the abnormalities are related to marrow hyperplasia, vascular occlusion, and several additional problems, including fracture and infection. Although these features are apparent in almost all the haemoglobin disorders, their severity varies, which in some cases allows differentiation among these disorders. The articular manifestations in the hemoglobinopathies can be attributed to epiphyseal osteonecrosis, growth disturbances, osseous weakening, infection, crystal deposition, hemarthrosis, and synovial membrane microvascular obstruction. In some patients, these articular abnormalities overshadow other clinical manifestations of the disease.

The candidate will learn the mechanics of putting together an electronic poster presentation in lecture type format.
This will be an official peer-reviewed publication.
The publication will be a favorable addition to the candidate's CV.
The candidate will be the first author, and I am the second author.
A candidate is not limited to completing one project. He/she can do as many as they like! (There are always topics to teach about)
The candidate, myself, King's College Hospital Department of Radiology and King's College all benefit from this publication.
