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.

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?

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?

No: No, not that I am aware of. Most women complete their growth 18-24 months after they start having periods, this is usually about the age of 13-14. I do not know of any condition where growth plates are open at the age of 30. If there was, she would be huge! ...Read more

I am 20/F, x ray shows CURVATURE STRAIGHTENED. Continuous pain on neck. Please help.?

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

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?

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 more

Can an X-ray show if your tubal ligation was a success or failure?

Can an X-ray show if your tubal ligation was a success or failure?

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

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 more

What is myofascial pain? Dr didn't explain. X-ray shows complete straightening of neck. Could this be the cause?

Myofascial pain: Myofascial pain is a fancy way to describe muscle pain. The fascia is the connective tissue that covers the muscles. This tissue can be damaged by injury, infection, inflammation and trigger points arise. The actual sites of the injury or strain prompts the development of these trigger points in turn causing pain elsewhere, aka referred pain. Yoga will help your neck regain proper curvature. ...Read more

Smaller bronchi become evident when walls thicken secondary to coughing, viral infection, or smoking. Vascular markngs are normally seen because veins and arteries contain blood. Vascular markings can increase in infection, heart failure, and with congenital heart disease ...Read more

What do the experts think, should my chest X-ray show that I have smoked?

What do the experts think, should my chest X-ray show that I have smoked?

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 more

Following an injury I had 2 weeks ago, I've had persistent dull pain on the lower end of my forearm (side facing body). X ray shows nothing. Ideas?

Following an injury I had 2 weeks ago, I've had persistent dull pain on the lower end of my forearm (side facing body). X ray shows nothing. Ideas?

Soft tissue injury: Much would depend on what type of injury you had i.E did you bang it, twist it, pull it etc.? X-rays only show injury to bones, so injuries to ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves will not show up. A good history and exam by a hand surgeon will tell a lot. If needed an MRI could help with the diagnosis of soft tissue injuries. Best of luck. ...Read more
