does a bone graft show up as bone on X-Ray?

Recommended Posts

maybe a silly question but on my last X-Ray there was still a gap at the fracture site on the XRay - where the bone graft should be? If the graft was fitted correctly shouldnt it appear as a solid healed bone pretty much? :thumbsup:

its not that simple. Some of the calcium is resorbed as it heals initially and it can confuse the whole issue. Post a copy of the x-ray on this message board.
