Primarily, DISH affects the spine, and radiographs demonstrate diffuse calcification and ossification
The difference in ossification
of vertebrae may possibly be due the reduced enzymatic activity of alkaline phosphatase which alters calcium concentrations resulting in change in bone morphology and ossification

Key imaging and clinical features of Eagle syndrome Key imaging features * Ossification
of the stylohyoid ligaments is best seen on lateral cervical and anteroposterior upper cervical radiographs Clinical features (1-4): dysphagia (i.
Surgical treatment for thoracic myelopathy due to simultaneous ossification
of the posterior longitudinal ligament and ligamentum flavum at the same level.

There are various degenerative conditions which may lead to thoracic stenosis such as thickening or OLF, facet joint hypertrophy, ossification
of the posterior longitudinal ligament, ventral disc protrusion or osteophytic changes.
Physiologic and pathologic calcifications and ossifications

Histologic examination of the mass showed heterotopic ossification
with the ballistic cavity in the soft tissue adjacent to the skin (Fig 4).
During surgery the abdomen was found to be blocked by a severe adhesion syndrome, five intestinal fistulas associated with the presence of multiple bone spicules, and by the ossification
of almost all of the mesentery.
Despite the fact that variations in the ossification
of the sternum of rats are common, about 95 to 100% of the sternebra is ossified at birth (Fritz & Hess, 1970).

The data / To determine whether the ossification
bogeyman has any credence, we reviewed 361 regulations deemed "major" and "economically significant" (defined as a rule with an effect on the economy of $100 million or more, thereby rendering it automatically subject to scrutiny from OIRA) issued by the federal government between 2005 and 2014.
