Understanding Your Diagnosis

  1. Bone Biopsy

    A bone biopsy is a procedure in which bone samples are removed to determine if cancer or other abnormal cells are present.

  2. Bone Scan

    A bone scan is used to examine the various bones of the skeleton to identify areas of physical and chemical changes in bone.

  3. Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) Scan of the Bones

    A CT scan shows detailed images of the bones, muscles, fat, and organs. CT scans are more detailed than standard X-rays.

    This procedure may be used to diagnose back or neck pain, fractures or broken bones, arthritis, degeneration of the disks, tumors, or other problems.
