Sometimes.: There are many forms of arthritis, and most are seen on X-Ray after you have the symptoms for a while.

Could anybody assess my X-ray to reassure me that the diagnosis of arthiritis for my upper right back pain (by the bile duct) was correct? Thanks
Yes: Your doctor should be able to help you. Arthritis in the upper back is uncommon. Cetainly your age is a bit young for degenerative arthritis. Unless your pain is persistent, I would not worry about arthritis. If your pain is persisting or getting worse, then you need to seek a second opinion from a joint specialist (rheumatologist). ...Read more

Hip pain swelling and the inability to put weight on my leg. The doctor didn't do an xray. He claimed arthiritis should he have done n xray?
Pressed my left foot to hard on a peddle felt something crunch been in pain ever since, had X-ray doctor said i, ve got arthritus and live with it. I feel a pad underneath foot and cannot walk.
Best to be seen: If you cannot walk after having this happen, I suggest being seen again. It is possible that you have a fracture that cannot be seen on a plain xray. It is not uncommon to find a fracture on an MRI that cannot be seen on plain xray. Hearing a crunch sound and not being able to walk are good clues of a possible fracture. I suggest elevation, rest, and crutches for now to prevent weight bearing. ...Read more
Joints involved: You can see some enlargement of certain joints in the hands, such as those in your fingers that allow them to bend. They can also become slightly bent and fixed.

Density: The tumor is dense so it blocks x-rays and shows up as a white circular mass on x-ray. ...Read more
Mycoplasma infection: Walking pneumonia is the commonly used name for infection caused by the organism mycoplasma pneumoniae. It can have a varied presentation on chest xray, ranging from diffuse reticulonodular pattern to lobar consolidation. There can be some fluid collection around the lungs as well. Ct scans can show ground glass patterns or even nodular densities at times. Xray findings are non-specific in most. ...Read more
Very Variable: It may not be detectable on an x-ray or could mimic another process like an infection or trauma. 2 classic presentations are called blastic or lytic- blastic appearance is when the region affected appears denser and lytic is when the affected region looks as if someone took n eraser to the area ; looks less dense. There are other image studies such as a bone scan or MRI that can help deliniate. ...Read more
