A 20-year-old female asked:
Dr. Christian Foglar
Orthopedic Surgery 32 years experience
Age?: this makes no sense You are 20 and stop growing by 16 unless there is some endocrine disease. Till aid fractures only occur in teenagers who still have a partially open growth plate At your age that is impossible. Thus the term tillage fracture is wrong. I don't know what kind of fracture it is so the question cannot be really answered without more information
A 29-year-old male asked:

No: simple answer If it is not specified to show the whole scapula it will not show the whole scapula and may not show the area of concern
A 48-year-old male asked:

Either joint or tend: It should be either joint or tendon related but more likely tendon. Can't tell you more than that without looking and feeling it.
