  • The known sensitivity of joint scintigraphy in following the course of fracture healing caused the authors to believe that this radiologic technique might be valuable in the management of osteochondritis dissecans (OCD). Accordingly, 99mTc-diphosphonate joint scintigraphy was used on 18 patients with OCD of the knee. The average age was 13½ years. The scintigrams were repeated at 6-week intervals until healing had occurred. When the diagnosis of OCD was established by stan dard roentgenograms… CONTINUE READING
