Dr. Barrack just had several good old-fashioned x-rays taken -- from
different angles. Nothing more than that. I think a doctor might
order more (e.g. MRI) if he or she suspects other problems. Now,
perhaps that might be the case with your situation (if I recall
correctly, you said something about an "impingement disorder??")
not sure if that is more complicated than "plain old" osteoarthritis.
