If high uptake is found, it is unlikely enostosis but rather a more aggressive lesion.
The terms bone island or enostosis may be used interchangeably to describe the same lesion, namely, a localized area of compact bone within the medullary cavity of a bone.
Bone scan findings are usually normal in patients with OPK, but reveal slightly increased activity similar to the bone island or enostosis that reflects active osseous remodelling that may be detected, especially in young patients with classic radiographic findings that are consistent with OPK.
