Little is known about scintigraphic image patterns in the various stages of coxarthrosis. We assessed bone scintigraphy in 159 patients (210 hips) with dysplastic arthrosis of the hip. Scintigraphic images were divided into 5 types related to the radiographic stages of the disease. The scintigraphic images showed little, if any, uptake in the stage of prearthrosis. In the early stage, we found an increase in uptake in the weight bearing area in 30% of cases. In the advanced stage, more than… CONTINUE READING
