Can a scaphoid fracture never show up on imaging? I fell
Patient :Can a scaphoid fracture never show up on imaging?
I fell a while ago (couple weeks) and my X-ray was clear. But I still have pain and can't move my wrist normally or grip things. I was offered the option of a repeat x Ray but said no.
If there's a small fracture is there a chance it will never show on an x Ray? I don't want to go back and waste time for a bruise :/
Symptoms: Pain when gripping and moving. Constant dull ache.
