I was diagnosed with mild grade degenerative spondylolethes 22 years ago. My latest x-ray shows a slip of 13mm, could you grade this please. Thanks.
Varies: The grade of the slip is based upon the percentage of one vertebrae slipped forward on the other. So, it is difficult to say with a number because it is based somewhat on the magnification of the X-ray. That being said, most of the time a 13 mm slip is grade II to grade III. ...Read more
Read on Net 39YO claims she grew 1 inch in 20s, another in 30s & is still growing. X-ray shows tibia not fused. Can this be true & if so what's cause?
Yes and no: The X-ray will show a mass on the bony spine , at times haze on the soft tissue on the spine and lesions eroding the spine. Al of these masses that can be seen on X-rays can be benign or malignant. Thus the X-ray will show the mass but can not prove it is cancer without a biopsy ...Read more
Sometimes: But not very often. With x-rays, the accepted technique is to have the smallest views possible so as to not give excess x-ray to the patient. This results in most of the neck not being seen in a head x-ray study. The neck is also a complex area of the body, and tumors in the neck are much better seen with a CT or MRI study with contrast injected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No: A plain x-ray will only show the presence of the 2 metallic clips placed (presumably) on the tube. The only x-ray study that could prove that the tubes are blocked by the ligation clips is a Hysterosalpingogram (HSG). A tiny catheter is placed in the uterine cavity and contrast (dye) is injected to show that the contrast stops at the clips and doesn't go beyond that point. ...Read more
Neck Pain: The straightened curvature in your neck on X-ray is a sign of pain and muscle spasm. You may be helped with a soft neck collar to relieve some of the spasm, muscle relaxants and pain medications like ibuprofen. Physical therapy also would be appropriate. Work with your doctor and your X-ray soon will be normal again. ...Read more
Musculoskeletal: The next possibility is a musculoskeletal problem. This could include a muscle strain, a short leg or a congenital problem with the feet (e.g., pes planus). Problems with the peripheral nervous system should also be considered, particularly if your child is experiencing foot drop. Next steps might include a consult with an orthopedist, a pediatric osteopathic physician and/or a neurologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've had a lower pack pain for one year. X-ray shows my pines are fine. What should I do to eliminate that pain?

No symptom of pneumonia but X-ray shows on right side a patchy alveolar infiltrates, rule out pneumonia.. What it could be as there is no symptom?
Many causes: Patchy infiltrates on chest xray are a non-specific finding that could be related to many different causes/conditions. In someone who is asymptomatic (like you), a detailed history, physical examination and further testing (if required) based on individual risk factors can help find the cause. Please talk to a lung specialist for further work up. I recommend treating the patient, not the xray. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sometimes.: There are many forms of arthritis, and most are seen on X-Ray after you have the symptoms for a while. Early on, the arthritis may cause symptoms in a joint without any X-Ray findings, and a negative X-Ray does not exclude many types of arthritis. If your symptoms persist, even with a negative X-Ray, see your Doctor for further evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Suggestion: If you have emphysema or, worse case scenario, lung cancer, then smoking may be inferred as it is a common cause of these. If radiologists see these issues we may raise the question of a smoking history. However, there is no finding on chest x-ray that is definitive for a smoking history. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
