Dr. Puryear ..'s Whiteboard
Jun 25 2009 by mary

My daughter is has had an X-ray of her hip to determine the cause of pain.  Soccer player, swimmer, runner, etc.  Nothing showed up on the x-ray and the Ortho MD has recommended PT for a couple of weeks and see how she's doing or to get the MRI and arthrogram.  We elected to have the MRI.  Is this necessary or would he dye show up on a regular x-ray vs. an MRI. 

Thank you
