bone scanPosted by Bam Bam on 3/09/05 at 12:25 (170793)
I had a bone scan done but can't get back to doctor until April 11. Can a doctor please tell me if this show a stress fracture or not? If so I will try to get in sooner if not I don't believe they will do anything else.
Findings: there is minor uptake at the left>right posterior inferior calcanei, most c/w plantar fasciitis
no other lesions seen
Please let me know if this means there is a stree fracture. Thank You

It states that you have plantar fasciitis. Very important to make sure that your doctor pointed out that he was looking for a stress fracture to the radiologist.
It does appear that you don't have a stress fracture but I would feel better having examined you which as you know I can't.

Thank you Dr. Zuckerman. The bone scan was to check for a stress fracture. We knew I had PF and TTS. I'm waiting to see a foot and ankle doctor at Fort Gordan. Dealing with Army doctors and Tricare is slow and to get good care. Thank you again.

+ scan can also mean bone bruise vs stress fracture
