Uptake of [99mTc]technetium methylene diphosphonate in the growth plates of the rabbit tibia during the final part of epiphyseal growth activity.


Uptake of 99mTc-MDP was measured in the proximal and distal growth plate of the rabbit tibia during the final phase of growth. Scintigraphic data were compared with roentgenographically measured tibial length and signs of bony fusion of the growth plates. Uptake by the proximal tibial growth plate was higher than in the distal tibial plate. Uptake decreased… (More)
