The principal application of nuclear medicine in metabolic bone disease is the isotope bone scan. Often, it is not a diagnostic tool but can be useful in clarifying the nature of a clinical problem. The best-established role for the bone scan in metabolic bone disease is in Paget's disease, in which it is diagnostic, provides definition of the extent of disease, and probably reflects disease activity. The isotope bone scan is also important in osteoporosis, for which it is not diagnostic but… CONTINUE READING
