I have looked through several medical journals and also searched on line; finally, I asked on orthopaedic specialist.  The MRI is actually the diagnostic tool of choice.

Here's an article from emedicine explaining it a bit more.  http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/327119-overview

 

Take care and hope you'e feeling better soon!

Do you need a prescription for this?
