The potential of hybrid SPECT/CT fusion imaging to improve diagnostic accuracy in the scintigraphic quantitative functional assessment of suspected unilateral mandibular hyperactivity

Abstract

Mandibular asymmetry is commonly caused by disproportionate mandibular growth due to unilateral condylar hyperactivity. The current standard for mandibular condyle bone scintigraphy uses single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging after intravenous administration of technetium-99m-labeled diphosphates. To our knowledge, the use of hybrid… (More)
