X Ray X ray Knee, What's your diagnosis?

Yes I know that they don't bring up questions like that in the exam but this picture you have to be so familiar with and spot the diagnosis immediately.

So have a look and tell me the diagnosis

Correct Answer Its Chondrocalcinosis

Its an image of Chondrocalcinosis, the underlying pathology of Pseudogout.

An image of OA would would show other signs such as narrowing of the joint, Subchondral bone sclerosis, osteophyets & bone cyst formation.
