The spongiosa shows up as the summation of many bone trabeculae; the bone marrow lying in between has a soft-tissue density. The opacity of the spongiosa varies according to the location within the long bone; according to Wolff’s Law, more trabeculae are produced at sites of high strain than at sites of less strain. Overall, in healthy cattle the spongiosa shows up as regularly structured with fluent transitions.

19,20,22 Intra-articular soft-tissue swelling is mainly caused by a joint effusion. Important information concerning the integrity of the ligaments is provided by evaluating the position and angle of the joint-forming bones (Fig. 12). Deviations from the axis indicate ligament ruptures. Such instabilities may be more reliably diagnosed by means of stress radiographs or when the limb is weight bearing. The radiologically visible joint space comprises all tissues present between the opposing subchondral bone plates including the joint cartilage, the synovial fluid, and possibly intracapsular ligaments or menisci.

Finally, the subchondral bone plates are evaluated. Thickening or sclerosis is a sign of increased stress, which typically shows up when joint cartilage is lost. There may be a generalized or localized reduction in the opacity of the subchondral bone plate. Localized increased radiopacity of the subchondral bone plate (lytic zones) mostly Fig. 14.
