Broken Bones and Treatment

A bone fracture is a medical condition in which the bone loses its continuity. This can be the result of trauma injury or we can say stress. This type of damage is also possible due to the medical condition in which the bones become weaker. This weakening of bones is the result of osteoporosis, bone cancer, or osteogenesis imperfecta, etc.

How is type of fracture diagnosed? 

  • For making images of any bone in the body, a bone x-ray is used. It can diagnose fractured bones or joint dislocations, identify the presence of bony fragments, and guide orthopedic surgery after all fracture reductions. These X-ray images provide the clearest, most thorough view of bones, but these images fail to show information about muscles, tendons or joints.
  • Then an MRI may be more useful in identifying bone, muscles and joint injuries (such as rotator cuff tears in the shoulder, ligament tears in the foot) and in taking images of the spine. Since the MRI will show the spinal bones and the spinal cord, both areas can be evaluated at once if a spinal cord injury is suspected.
  • A CT scan shows images of complicated fractures, subtle fractures or dislocation that x-ray may not detect. The CT scan provides better assessment of trauma patients in emergency room settings. In the elderly patient or individuals with osteoporosis, a hip fracture shows up clearly on a CT scan, but perhaps barely perceptible on a plain hip x-ray.
  • A nuclear medicine bone scan gives another imaging test to help in diagnosing bone fractures. Bone scan can detect bone injury or fracture not perceptible by routine x-ray.
