bone scan

Posted by chrisc on 12/03/01 at 15:43 (066001)

I have had continuing pain in my foot, which originated as PF pain. This has gone on for over a year. I have had x-rays taken and an MRI done, both negative. My question is whether a bone scan can reveal anything that these two might have missed?
Thanks for any insights.

Yes. A bone scan can reveal a stress fracture, something which can be negative on both x-rays and MRI.
