Skeletal radiographs and non-decalcified bone specimens from 17 chronically uremic patients with radiographic evidence of bone disease were studied quantitatively. The results of each morphological technique were compared in an attempt to define the roentgenographic manifestations of renal osteodystrophy histologically. The radiographs correlated best with the trabecular bone manifestations of osteitis fibrosa but showed poor correlation with histological evidence of osteomalacia. Radiographic signs of osteosclerosis could not be correlated with any radiographic or histological feature of bone resorption.
