Title X-ray assessment of changes in the hand bones of automobile body grinders on exposure to low-frequency local vibration
Original title Rentgenologičeskaja ocenka kostnyh izmenenij kistej ot vozdejstvija lokal'noj nizkočastotnoj vibracii u šlifovščikov avtomobil'nyh kuzovov [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Apr. 1984, No.4, p.40-42. 9 ref.
Abstract X-rays were taken of the hands of 38 car-body grinders whose exposure to vibration did not exceed maximum allowable levels. Minor adaptive and degenerative-dystrophic changes in the finger bones were noted, especially in the end and middle joints. Although the changes were not those characteristic of vibration disease, the given levels of low-frequency vibration are apparently not biologically neutral.
