WT may be differentiated from malignant lesions based on "hot" uptake with 99mTc pertechnetate scintography
, which is due to the epithelial component's ability to concentrate 99mTc pertechnetate but not secrete it [18, 19].
The recommended workup for diagnosing a PJI includes blood tests for CRP and ESR, X-rays and occasionally scintography
and joint cultures (Ailabouni, Jennings, & Hooper, 2015).
(4) A retrospective review by Soubrier and colleagues examined 60 cases of IF, as defined by a newly documented fracture occurring spontaneously or resulting from moderate pressure; fractures were confirmed by radiography, scintography
, CT, and MRI over a 9-year period.

(13) Three tests frequently used to diagnose GERD include 1) intra-esophageal pH monitoring, scintography
, and intraluminal esophageal impedance; 2) inflammation testing; and 3) the use of symptom-assessment questionnaires.
Perfusion lung scintography
did not support a diagnosis of pulmonary embolism.
, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging depict associated bone and soft-tissue abnormalities.
Francis Dubosq reported that myocardial scintography
revealed coronary artery disease in 9 (29%) of 31 men who sought treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) from urologists at Hopital Foch in Suresnes, France.
and Cook, D.J., 'Technetium-99m Calcium Phytate: Optimization of Calcium Content for Liver and Spleen Scintography
The primary study end point was median infarct size as measured by scintography
5-10 days post MI.
(24) MRI is the diagnostic method of choice; computerized tomography and scintography
are less accurate and do not pick up the pre-radiographic lesions.
