Technical note: bone SPECT of the wrist.

A technique for single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) during bone scintigraphy of the wrist is described. The technique has been developed as a means to improve localization of abnormalities observed on 99Tcm-MDP planar bone scintigraphy. A wrist phantom and 15 wrists in 13 symptomatic patients were examined. Good spatial detail was achieved… CONTINUE READING
