Describe the tests that led to a diagnosis of a broken finger.

Comment from: digitless, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: March 21

I had bruising, swelling, numbness, and a strange dimple in the pad of my finger. The hospital took x-rays that confirmed a broken finger tip under the nail bed area.

I had an x-ray, but the finger was very swollen and I was unable to move it, so I suspected it was broken.
