Abstract

Musculoskeletal complaints are common in the elderly population. The main concerns in geriatric orthopedics are the increased incidence of trauma, degeneration, and malignancy, commonly compounded by comorbidities and the effects of ageing. Imaging of common and important diseases of the axial and peripheral skeleton in the elderly is reviewed in this article.
