Nondisplaced Subchondral Fracture
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing.

In essence its more to do with the shape of the nose and not the detail of xrays. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
