Bone scintigraphy is currently a reference test in the initial staging of cancer. Bone scintigraphy historically consists in a planar whole-body scintigraphy (WBS). SPECT/CT has been shown...
A new imaging modality combining CT and tomographic bone scintigraphy (SPECT/CT) has enabled the combination of functional and anatomical imaging. Its use in cancer patients has not yet be...
Prospective observational study to assess bone predictive biomarkers for TKI response in RCC patients with bone metastasis and HRQoL with TKI in these patients as well as the sensitivity a...
Skeletal is a common metastatic site in patients with non-small cell lung cancer. The incidence of bone metastases is about 20-30％ in NSCLC patients. According to the NCCN guidelines, ea...
The number of metastases in a patient with primary or recurrent prostate cancer has major prognostic implication. The purpose is to compare, in a pilot study, the diagnostic performance o...
Three-phase bone scintigraphy is sometimes of great value in the detection of uncharacteristic metastases and assists the management of patients in terms of primary focus detection. While evaluating t...
A 62-year-old man with esophageal cancer was referred for a Tc-MDP bone scintigraphy for staging. No metastatic lesion in the bone was identified. However, the images showed focally increased activity...
Bone scintigraphy is a method of choice in evaluating metastatic disease in patients with prostatic cancer. We describe the case of a 77-year-old man who was subjected to bone scan for evaluation of s...
Radium-223 is an approved survival-prolonging treatment option in men with castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) and bone metastases. In the registration trial (ALSYMPCA), no regular imaging wa...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the clinical usefulness of bone scintigraphy for etiological diagnosis of patients with atypical chest pain.
A technetium imaging agent used in renal scintigraphy, computed tomography, lung ventilation imaging, gastrointestinal scintigraphy, and many other procedures which employ radionuclide imaging agents.
Poly or pyrophosphates of tin. In conjunction with radioactive technetium these compounds are used as bone-scanning agents and in scintigraphy to diagnose myocardial and cerebral infarction.
The eight bones of the wrist: SCAPHOID BONE; LUNATE BONE; TRIQUETRUM BONE; PISIFORM BONE; TRAPEZIUM BONE; TRAPEZOID BONE; CAPITATE BONE; and HAMATE BONE.
Agents that inhibit BONE RESORPTION and/or favor BONE MINERALIZATION and BONE REGENERATION. They are used to heal BONE FRACTURES and to treat METABOLIC BONE DISEASES.
A type of osseous tissue which makes up the inner part of bone. It has a spongy, honeycomb-like structure with struts or trabecula and contains the BONE MARROW. It has higher rate of BONE REMODELING turnover than CORTICAL BONE.
