Comrades Injuries
Dr. P you wanted to know more about my Comrades Injuries......
The comment from the Dr was "Appearance in keeping with tendenosis as well as tenosinovitus of both tibialis anterior tendons. ITB syndrome is seen on the right. Both these injuries are due to overuse.

Thanks for your advise. Do you mean I have to have a bone density Scan?

Hi
It's a bone isotope scan not a bone density scan. An isotope scan basically shows up hot spots of, for example, a fracture that is healing. A bone density scan shows up how thick and strong the bone is.
Remeber all the other factors especially including Xrays and podiatric assessment.
