A prospective study was designed to compare two methods of quantifying technetium-99m methylene diphosphonate uptake in the mandibular condyle. The standard technique expresses condylar activity as a ratio of condylar uptake to a reference (often the fourth lumbar vertebra) with planar scans (lateral images of the mandible). The experimental technique quantifies condylar activity as a ratio of condyle to clivus uptake with single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). The results of this… CONTINUE READING
