In a study comparing two forms of bone scanning
Again, findings on CT of the brain, chest, abdomen, and pelvis, as well as whole-body technetium bone scanning
, were negative.
Subsequent staging procedures (i.e., chest x-ray, ultrasonography of the upper abdominal region, bone scanning
, positronemission tomography, and computed tomography of the face and neck) detected no sign of regional or distant metastasis.
In four sessions of the two-day program, RUTA members and their family members were brought under bone scanning
. Subsequently, based on the scanning report they were given prescription by the attending nutritionists.
Hybrid SPECT-CT bone scanning
offers anatomic details and differentiates between benign entity and metastasis.
We read the publication on "Usefulness of nuclear whole-body bone scanning
for diagnosis of leprosy" with great interest.
We conducted a study to analyze the behavior of idiopathic NBO and its outcome and to determine a cutoff level for diagnosis using technetium-99m-methylene-diphosphonate (Tc-MDP) bone scanning
. This retrospective, controlled analysis involved 9 women (mean age: 44 yr) who had been admitted to an otolaryngology department in Israel with idiopathic NBO over a 5-year period.
Careful observation is required for contra-lateral femurs due to high incidence of bilateral atypical femoral fractures among patients treated with bisphosphonates for more than 3 years duration.12 Various screening modalities which have been described in the literature include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), isotope bone scanning
, micro-computed tomography, positron emission tomography and possibly bone turnover markers.
Assessment of disease status--including computed tomography of the abdomen, pelvis, and chest, bone scanning
, and serum prostate cancer specific antigen (PSA) level measurement--was conducted every 12 weeks.
In previously intact skeleton, it is preferable to use 3-phase bone scanning
as the imaging modality of choice for osteomyelitis.
Anlene, a dairy products brand specially formulated for adults' bone health, is offering free bone scanning
sessions for a limited time in Bahrain.
PET is a reasonable technique for sclerotic bony metastases, but further research is still required in order to determine the relative merits of bone scanning
and PET imaging for sclerotic bone disease.
