Hi could you please explain what "moderately intense increased tracer uptake at the L5-S1 level of the lumbar spine and L4-5 level and right hip joint?

Bone scan?: Did you have a bone scan done? Assuming that is the case, a chemical (tracer) is injected into the body and will "light up" anywhere there is increased bone activity (increased tracer uptake). Causes of intense increased uptake usually are seen with a fracture, some metastatic lesions, and infections of the bone. Moderate uptake can be seen in arthritic joints such as possibly your hip and back ...Read more

Diagnosed with avn of right hip last sept. Due to high dose scrip of multiple steroids 3 yrs ago. I had a thr in oct. How do I know other joints are ok?

This is often due to a break (i.e. Bo jackson) although steroids can do it as well. It is highly unlikely that any of your other joints would be affected without some specific reason. ...Read more
