What is the approximate cost of an operation to fix chronic Achilles tendonitis? And what is the cost of an MRI to diagnose it?
It depends...: Do you have insurance coverage? If your doctor is a contracted member of your insurance plan, and your deductible and co-insurance level is reasonable, the cost should be nominal.

The MRI shows a lesion noted at the optic nerve and the orth.asked me to get a PET scan to find out more? Is it necesaary?
Not clear on this: Which kind of doctor exactly asked you to get a PET scan? It looks like ORTHOPEDIC. What is an orthopod doing getting an MRI of the head? At any rate, the only reason I can see that getting a PET scan following an MRI for a lesion at the optic nerve would be if there were a suspicion that the lesion were malignant. So, if that's the case then, YES it would be advisable to do it. Otherwise, no. ...Read more

Is an emg more accurate than an mri? The MRI showed fluid on the nerve and i wanted to know if the emg will give more info on it!

Emg tests how the nerve transmits electrical signals and, as such, is a test of nerve function. Mri shows anatomy and EMG tests how well the nerve is working. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How far does the Achilles tendon ascend in the leg? What is a common diagnostic tool to diagnose injury/disease of the tendon that isn't ruptured?
Severe sprain: Most, not all avulsion fractures around the ankle are treated in a manner very similar to a severe ankle sprain. The ligaments that hold the bones of the ankle together can tear in the middle of the ligament, or they can pull off a small piece of bone where the ligament typically attaches to that bone. That is the most common cause of and avulsion fracture. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
On an mri, how do you know if you're looking at the right part to see patellar tilt or how the cartilage looks behind the knee cap?
Up to doc: The radiologist and the referring orthopedist are in the best position to determine the the "right part" to look at. Often the patient and/or doctor put a marker at the point of maximum pain prior to taking the MRI to help to isolate the area of concern better. Cross esection views are best to determine if the patella is tilting with the knee bent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What would be the best way to treat a compression fracture in L2 or L3 and if untreated what would i look forward to down the road? 22, X-ray at 20.
Depends: This depends on why you have the compression fractures (assuming trauma at your age), how much vertebral body height is lost, if there is any abnormal angulation of your spine at that level, and if there is any significant retropulsion of bone into the spinal canal. The answers to these questions determine the specific details of how you may do in future. However most heal in matter of months.Gl! ...Read more

Chronic top of foot pain, MRI negative, dr doesn't seem to know but wants me to do more pt.This hasn't helped and it's costly. Second opinion?
Possible neuritis: There are not many structures on the top of the foot other than skin, fat, tendons, few small muscles ligaments and the underlying joints and bones. Nri's poorly visualize nerves since they are small at the level of the foot. If the pain shoots or radiates or tjhe area tingles when u tap where it hurts it is possibly a nerve problem.
