Nonunion

Screening and Tests for Nonunion

Screening for a nonunion begins with a medical history and an evaluation of symptoms (e.g., pain, swelling, instability or deformity) at the site of a prior broken bone. After that, a physical exam is typically performed to reveal tenderness, deformity or instability typically associated with a nonunion, and imaging tests such as x-rays, CT scans, MRIs or bone scans may also be usually in accurately diagnosing nonunions, as they allow the doctor a detailed view of internal structures.
