Indium-111 labeled leukocyte imaging was compared with three-phase skeletal scintigraphy as a means of determining whether osteomyelitis was complicating diabetic osteoarthropathy. Three-phase scintigraphy demonstrated increased activity in both infected and noninfected osteopathic bone, with a sensitivity of 75% and a specificity of 56% for osteomyelitis.(More)
Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging has a growing role as an imaging modality to be used in conjunction with magnetic resonance and computed tomographic imaging in the detection, staging, and management of many sarcomas and carcinomas. Since PET is a relatively new modality and the incidence of sarcomas is low, it has not yet been approved for use in(More)

Ten males as opposed to one(More)
Pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) is an uncommon entity, which has the potential to cause severe pain. The gold standard for evaluation is MRI, and previous PET findings associated with PVNS have only been documented in the setting of concurrent malignancy. In the setting of recurrent disease, PET is being used to evaluate prebiological and(More)

A well-defined, expanding, osteolytic lesion, with some degree of septation, is noted in the posterior aspect of the right sixth rib near the costovertebral junction. In addition, a(More)
