The effect of the deprivation of sensory feedback on the musculoskeletal system can be profound. An anesthetized joint or bone that is subject to continuing stress deteriorates progressively, with the appearance of specific radiographic abnormalities. These changes, which include articular space narrowing, bony eburnation, osteophytosis, fragmentation, fracture, and subluxation, can accompany a variety of disorders but are most common in diabetes mellitus, tabes dorsalis, and syringomyelia. When severe, the resulting radiographic picture is diagnostic; in earlier stages, however, the findings may resemble those of osteoarthritis, calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystal deposition disease, calcium hydroxyapatite crystal deposition disease, osteonecrosis, or, in the spine, intervertebral (osteo)chondrosis.

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.
