The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic capabilities of SPECT-CT and planar osteoscintigraphy with 99m-Tc-labeled phosphates in cancer patients. There were examined 227 patients with various primary malignancies (mean age 57 years). Depending on the identified changes in the planar study patients were divided into four groups: I--no abnormalities (n = 62), II--benign changes (n = 67), III--suspected metastatic lesion (n = 41), IV--metastatic lesion (n = 57). The use of SPECT-CT in… CONTINUE READING
