PURPOSE The use of SPECT/CT in bone scans has been widespread in recent years, but there are no specific guidelines concerning the optimal acquisition protocol. Two strategies have been proposed: targeted SPECT/CT for equivocal lesions detected on planar images or systematic whole-body SPECT/CT. Our aim was to compare the diagnostic accuracy of the two approaches. METHODS 212 consecutive patients with a history of cancer were referred for bone scans to detect bone metastases. Two experienced… CONTINUE READING
