I had a bone scan for persistent foot pain that's been going on since October. Here is the radiologist's report:
There is symmetric flow to the lower extremitites blilaterally on the flow images. The blood-pool images show mild hypermia in the left mid foot region. The bone scan images show very mild increased radiotracer activity in the subtalar joints, the left being slightly more intense than the right and very mild increased radiotracer activity in the tibiotaler joint, the right being slightly more than the left. There is also mild increased radiotracer activity in the plantar sufaces of the calcaneus bilarterally suggesting mild plantar fasciitis. There is also increased radiotracer activity in the medial sesamoid of the right great toe. All of these areas of increased actiity are fairly mild and do not suggest stress fractures.
1. Bilateral plantar fasciitis is present.
2. Degenerative changes are seen in both ankles in both the tibiotalar and subtalar joints as described above.
3. Mild increased activity in the medial sesamoid and right great toe.
