************************************************** ********* I don't believe in blindly jumping fromn one high-tech diagnostic modality to another unless one know what he is looking for. This business of substituting these techniques for basic diagnostic skills derived through experience, I believe, is a flawed concep,t and simply relegates the practice of medicine to a machine rather than a person. So, it depends on what your doctor is thinking and what he/whe is looking to rule in or out as to whether a bone scan might be helpful.

I cannot help you with selection of a podiatrist in Denver, and I don't make such referrals through the Internet anyhow. It is my firm policy not to personally treat or become diectly involved with anyone to whose questions I've offered general opinions in this forum, There are too many doctors everywhere who use forums such as this for their own financial benefit and I won't be one of them.

I've covered my recommendations for the basic selection of a podiatric surgeon on this forum on many occassions. Look at:
