Incremental value of 99mTc-MDP hybrid SPECT/CT over planar scintigraphy and SPECT in avascular necrosis of the femoral head.


OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate the incremental value of technetium-99m-methylene diphosphonate (99mTc-MDP) single-photon emission tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) over planar bone scintigraphy (BS) and SPECT in the diagnosis of avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head. MATERIALS AND METHODS The data of 44 patients (mean age 36… (More)
