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… Expand
The results of conservative management of juvenile osteochondritis dissecans using joint scintigraphy
TLDR
A prospective clinical study used joint scintigraphy to investigate conservative treatment of juvenile osteo chondritis dissecans (JOCD) of the femoral condyle and found that based on specific indications for failure of conserva tive treatment, 50% of these patients failed and under went surgery.

The value of magnetic resonance imaging as postoperative control after arthroscopic treatment of osteochondritis dissecans
TLDR
A retrospective study of an operated oste onecrosis dissecans by MRI provides more detailed information about eventual revascularization of the osteonecrotic area. Expand
Erratum to: Juvenile osteochondritis of femoral condyles: treatment with transchondral drilling. Analysis of 40 cases
TLDR
All patients presenting juvenile condylar osteochondritis with open growth plate during treatment had good clinical and radiological results, confirming the validity and effectiveness of multiple transchondral drilling in this type of lesion. Expand

TLDR
All patients presenting juvenile condylar osteochondritis with open growth plate during treatment had good clinical and radiological results, confirming the validity and effectiveness of multiple transchondral drilling in this type of lesion. Expand
Dynamic bone scintigraphy in osteochondritis dissecans
TLDR
Preliminary results show that dynamic bone scintigraphy holds promise as a technique for identification and management of osteochondritis dissecans and the sensitivity was 90%. Expand

All patients presenting juvenile condylar osteochondritis with open growth plate during treatment had good clinical and radiological results, confirming the validity and effectiveness of multiple transchondral drilling in this type of lesion. Expand
Analysis of risk factors for poor prognosis in conservatively managed juvenile osteochondritis dissecans of the lateral femoral condyle.
TLDR
A majority of patients with juvenile OCD in the lateral femoral condyle could be managed with conservative treatment and the presence of discoid meniscus and longer time-period from onset to consultation were significantly related with poor prognosis. Expand
Functional and Radiographic Outcome of Juvenile Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Knee Treated with Transarticular Arthroscopic Drilling *
TLDR
Given the low morbidity of drilling and the associated improvement in functional and radiographic outcomes, this study advocate arthroscopic transarticular drilling for patients with juvenile osteochondritis dissecans of the medial femoral condyle with an intact articular surface who have had failure of initial nonoperative management.

Juvenile Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Knee: Predictors of Lesion Stability
TLDR
MRI continues to be reliably sensitive to JOCD lesions and a good predictor of low-grade, stable lesions, however, MRI predictability of high- grade, unstable J OCD lesions is less reliable. Expand

TLDR
Thallium-201 chloride imaging and 99mTc-sestamibi imaging have an important role in the assessment of tumor response to chemotherapy and in the quantification of tumor viability. Expand

TLDR
In 38 fractures of the human tibia showing radiological consolidation within 6 months, the amount of callus formed was assessed monthly by scintimetry following intravenous administration of 99Tcm-Sn-polyphosphate to serve as a basic study of the method's suitability in early diagnosis of pathological healing.
