A few days after the imageing you should be able to attain the radiologist were the film was taken.  That being said I am not a doctor but had this test done.  The darker spots is were the material was taken up, and is supposed to show if bone metabolism and attempts at regrowth.  The theory is that is should show were the arthritis is in your knees.  Good Luck.
