Bush Gets MRI on Left Shoulder

ABC News' Huma Khan Reports: President George W. Bush on Monday got an MRI of his left shoulder at the Walter Reed Medical Center before visiting wounded soldiers at the hospital.

White House physician, Dr. Richard Tubb set up the appointment after Bush experienced intermittent pain, but the doctor said it's "probably just wear and tear from an active individual."

Deputy press secretary Gordon Johndroe said the pain has not impacted the president's duties.

Bush was at Walter Reed Monday afternoon to meet 13 soldiers who were wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. The president plans to give seven purple hearts.

Results from the MRI are expected later today.
