Paget’s disease of bone

Paget's disease of bone is a metabolic disorder of the bone, resulting in deformation and pain. It most commonly affects the axial skeleton; pelvis, lumbo-sacral spine, skull, femur and tibia. Diagnostic imaging is a key part of modern day diagnosis, and many cases are in fact incidental findings.
