Clinical diagnosis of Orthopaedic
Session 02: Clinical diagnosis of Orthopaedic
To diagnose and screen for orthopaedic problems, a range of tests can be employed. Some diagnostic tests can assist to identify the exact location and severity of the problem. Bone densitometry, skeletal scintigraphy, discography, myelography, and electromyography are all common orthopaedic examinations. In some circumstances, additional tests, such as muscle biopsy and bone marrow biopsy may be required.
