This is part of a medical questionnaire and one subsection on preoperative radiotherapy there is the term "Acetabula" and three boxes to be checked: normal, dysplasic and "protuso".
Does anyone have any ideas?
Explanation: I think in this context that “protuso” should read “profuso”.
Following are the definitions of the terms appearing in the text.
Acetabula = Alga clorofícea unicelular con forma de sombrilla, de color
verde claro (Acetabularia mediterranea).
Dysplasia = Merriam-Webster: abnormal growth or development (as of
organs or cells); broadly : abnormal anatomic structure due to
Termium: Variation in the size and shape of cells (pleomorphism), accompanied by loss of normal orientation and by increase in the number of cells; mitotic figures, if present, are normal.
Profuse = Merriam-Webster: exhibiting great abundance
