Can an X-ray show if u have trigger finger and/or arthritis? I really need a test done to satisfy myself before surgery is done.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

It may reveal arthritis but will not help diagnose a trigger finger.

In brief: Usually clinical Dx

This is usually a clinical diagnosis.
It may show up in the locked position. Splinting, NSAIDS and injections may be attempted prior to surgery. All the best.
