MRI Reveals Gouty Tophi On Finger Bone

This MRI scan shows tophaceous gout in the finger bone. Uric acid crystals can grow anywhere, damaging tissues and destroying bones.

The image is from the gouty case study, Intraosseous tophaceous gout in the proximal phalanx of the small finger. You can read my review of that report, and see many more gouty tophi in the tophi guidelines

Medical Disclaimer: The pupose of GoutPal is to provide jargon-free explanations of medical gout-related terms and procedures. Because gout sufferers need to know what questions to ask their doctor. Also, you need to understand what your doctor tells you. So this website explains gout science. But it is definitely NOT a substitute for medical advice.

Information on this website is provided by a fellow gout sufferer (Keith Taylor) with an accountant's precision for accurate data. But no medical qualifications. So you must seek professional medical advice about gout and any other health matters.
