Fourteen children with histopathologically confirmed neuroblastoma underwent 38 studies using 99mTc-methylene-diphosphonate (MDP) and galliumcitrate Ga67 whole-body scintigraphy during various stages of the disease. Ten patients (71%) showed 99mTc-MDP accumulation in the primary tumoral site, whereas 11 patients (78.6%) showed 67Ga concentration. In 12 patients (86%), at least one of these two radiopharmaceuticals concentrated in the primary tumor. Nine patients had osseous or extraosseous… Expand
