The authors evaluate the reliability of combined indium-111-labeled white blood cell (WBC) and technetium-99m methylene diphosphonate (MDP) bone scan interpretations at sites of suspected periarticular osteomyelitis with radiographic evidence of adjacent traumatic arthropathy. A review of all orthopedic patients who underwent In-111 WBC-Tc-99m MDP scintigraphy over a 7-year period revealed a subset of 32 such cases that also included results of bone-biopsy cultures. Twenty-eight patients had a… CONTINUE READING
