This study used logistic regression analysis to assess qualitative patterns of tracer accumulation in an attempt to improve the diagnostic utility of bone scintigraphy for the detection of the bone marrow oedema syndrome (BMOS) and avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head. Forty-eight symptomatic patients aged 44 +/- 9 years (mean +/- S.D.) with a final diagnosis of AVN (n = 29 hips), BMOS (n = 22), nine other hip disorders or a normal hip were examined with dynamic bone scintigraphy and… CONTINUE READING
