X Rays Of Degenerative Arthritis
Yes: The bone scan shows areas of active bone deposition as "hot". Osteopenia won't be diagnosed as this denotes loss of bone density. Degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis may not be demonstrated if they are insufficient to cause a bone response (healing or what is medically called an osteoblastic response). ...Read more
This common degenerative condition impacts the joints, where normal wear and tear on them gets to a point where they can no longer keep up with the pace of generating fresh cartilage. As a result, the joint space thins, the bone becomes exposed and painful, and bone spurs ...Read more
No: X-ray will reveal the space between the vertebral bodies where the disc is found but unless the disc is calcified, it will not be visualized as x-ray energy will pass through this soft tissue structure while it does not penetrate the bone but you can get idea of how degenerative the disc may be by seeing how narrowed the disc space is or amount of bone spurs seen around it. Ct & MRI reveal disc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Typical X-ray. : These are typical changes from rheumatoid arthritis. The IP (?PIP) and MCP loss are signs that you are developing joint damage. If you have not been started on treatment you should see a rheumatologist. You should be on methotrexate or another disease modifying mecication to prevent further damage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Xray recently shows severe joint space narrowing involve the patellofemoral compartment with underlying subchondral sclerosis & osteophyte formation?
Osteoarthritis: These are classical findings of osteoarthritis being spelled out by the radiologist. Osteoarthritis develops as we lose the cartilage that is not seen on X-ray and usually leaves a "joint space" on films. During this degenerative cascade, sclerosis happens to the bone under cartilage and bone tries to increase its surface area when weakened by forming spurs called osteophytes. Good luck. ...Read more

Would calcification of the soft tissues show clearly on xray, or mri, for example stiffness in thoracic spine due to spondylitis?
Usually but always: Calcifications will show up on x-ray if there is enough of them. MRI doesn't show calcifications well. In the case of spondylitis, depending on the cause, there could bone erosions (loss of calcification), no calcifcation or abnormal calcificaion. A radiologist is trained to look for these things especially if spondylitis is listed in the diagnosis. ...Read more
Sudden onset pain MTP joint. Xray showed bipartite sesamoid, no fracture. MRI identified only reactive marrow oedema, what are my treatment options?
This is a difficult : Thing to treat. You can try custom orthotics with a built in dancers pad. If you work out or excercise you will have to stop for an extended time period. The sesamoid bone is small and the blood supply very tenuous so you need to be very cautious. Other options include crutch walking for a couple or weeks or wearing a stiff sole shoe so you don't propulse at the mpj allowing rest of the joint. ...Read more
