Hi, Everyone.....got another inquiry. With the X-rays, CT scans and MRI's.....do they show collogen? I mean...do they show that it is harden and causing problems in the hands, rib cage, etc. You would think with all the modern medicine, there would be a definitive way to diagnosis scleroderma. Besides physical hx., blood work and these scans is there any definitive method to 'see' the harden collogen?
Take care, Everyone.
