Within the left pelvis there is a transplanted kidney demonstrating small intrarenal calculi and cysts. The spine has diffuse heterogenous osteosclerotic changes. Diffrentials include metastatic (such as prostate CA), hematological (myelofibrosis), and metabolic disorders such as renal osteodystrophy.
