I've been an MT for twenty-five years and this has always confused me.....crepitus or crepitant? Do they mean the same? The word my doc uses sounds like "crepitance" and I can't even find that in the dictionaries. For instance, when examining an elbow or knee he will say "There was no crepitance." Thanks everyone.

Hi Cindy--

It's crepitus. Crepitance is a docspeak made-up non word.

Here is a site that searches a whole bunch of dictionaries when you enter a word in the search box:

Thanks Carol! I had a feeling it was another made up word. I transcribe for four HCPs and I get a lot of that. Thanks for the link also. Cindy
