Does grade 1 osteoarthritis show up on xrays??
« on: December 16, 2009, 05:58:18 PM »
I'am 30yrs old  and damaged my knee afew years ago.I hav been having problem ever since.Last year i had another x-ray done and the doc said it came back ok,then he sent me for an mri,he said it to came back ok.
The doc then started me on synvisc  injections which helped alot.The doc says i have grade 1 osteoarthritis in the knee.
Woula a radiologist see more in xrays than ordinary doctors????
The reason i am asking this is because my insurance was getting there doc to have an x-ray done and he was not looking at any of my medical history.
All my own doctors say i have grade1 OA,is it possible that my insurance will say my knee is ok,when its not!!!???????
Thanks for any help.
