Front Limbs

  • Left radius – multifocal – high IRU  in the mid-diaphysis.
  • Right radius – moderate IRU – proximal diaphysis.
  • Right humerus – moderate IRU – Proximal and distal diaphysis/metaphysis.
  • Left forelimb proximal P1 and distal MC3 – mild IRU
  • Proximal palmar cortex of the right MCIII – mild IRU
  • Right forelimb pastern – mild IRU

Hind Limbs

  • Left femur – moderate IRU – distal cortex
  • Left tibia – moderate IRU – proximal cortex
  • Right tibia – moderate IRU – distal cortex
  • Left Stifle – moderate IRU
  • Bilateral hindlimb pasterns and P3 – mild IRU
  • The multifocal long bone lesions are consistent with enostosis-like lesions (ELL).
