Formerly, 67Ga was used for bone imaging, but nowadays its use is mostly restricted to osteomyelitis of the spine, where false negative studies 111 have been reported with In granulocyte scintigraphy. Interventions The pelvis can be difficult to evaluate when there is tracer activity in the bladder. In patients with pelvic symptoms, one or more of the following additional views are useful: —A second image taken immediately after voiding. Normal and abnormal bone scintigraphy It is essential to be thoroughly familiar with normal bone findings in order to accurately recognize pathology. Physiologically, there tends to be a distinct accumulation of tracer in the cranial vault, facial bones around the nasal cavity, shoulders, manubriosternal junction, sternoclavicular joints, spine, sacroiliac joints, pelvis and hips. It is well known that tracer accumulates intensely in the physes of growing bones. Scintigraphic abnormalities of bones and joints are presented as either increased or decreased uptakes, often described as ‘hot areas’ and ‘cold areas’ respectively. Among a range of parameters that may distort scan findings, the tilting of the body to either side is probably the most critical. Since photon energy diminishes rapidly according to the inverse distance square law, even a slight difference between the target–detector distances results in significant image distortion and asymmetry. Thus, bone structures closest to the detector may appear unusually hot, leading to an erroneous interpretation. Bone scintigraphic abnormalities can be recognized in three essential ways: morphology, tracer uptake pattern and vascularity. Morphological alterations are expressed in terms of size, shape and position, and radionuclide uptake pattern and vascularity as increased, unaltered or decreased. Lesions that tend to display cold areas include acute avascular necrosis, lytic metastasis and multiple myeloma. Clinical applications Scintigraphy is useful for the following diseases and conditions: (1) Acute infective diseases of bone; (2) Tuberculosis of bone; (3) Non-infective inflammations of bone; (4) Indium-111 and 99mTc labelled leucocytes and 67Ga scans in bone infections; (5) Transient synovitis of the hip; (6) Acute pyogenic arthritis; (7) Osteoarthritis; (8) Rheumatoid arthritis; (9) Ankylosing spondylitis; (10) Reiter’s syndrome; (11) Reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome; (12) Avascular necrosis of bone; (13) Osteochondroses; (14) Traumatic and sports injuries of bone; (15) Periarticular rheumatism syndromes; (16) Muscular and musculotendinous rheumatism syndromes; (17) Metabolic diseases of bone; (18) Benign and primary malignant bone tumours; (19) Metastatic bone tumours; (20) Tumorous conditions of bone. Acute osteomyelitis typically involves metaphysis of the long bones where the end-arteries are distributed, providing favourable conditions for bacterial embolization. Osteitis, which commonly occurs in association with osteomyelitis, is the infection of compact bone. Cortical abscesses are a special form of acute pyogenic infection in which the infective focus is within the cortex. Pinhole scintigraphy can distinguish these conditions by specifically locating the anatomic pathological site and assessing the tracer uptake pattern of the individual diseases. Infection is either blood borne or the direct result of a traumatic wound or surgery. Infective spondylitis, both acute and chronic, produces the characteristic ‘sandwich’ sign on magnified scintigraphs. This sign consists of intense tracer uptake in two apposing end-plates with narrowed disc space. Pathologically, bone tuberculosis is characterized by destruction with relatively mild reactive bone formation. A special form of tuberculosis, which involves the finger in infants, is known as spina ventosa. Planar bone scan findings are usually not specific, but pinhole scinti- graphy reveals findings of diagnostic value. The diseased bone shows a localized area of increased tracer uptake, occasionally with associated photopenic area(s). In the spine, as in acute infective spondylitis, tuberculosis involves two or more neighbouring vertebrae and intervertebral discs. Extended tracer uptake can be seen deep in the vertebral bodies, confirming that the chronic granulo- matous process spreads from the end-plate into the vertebral body. Each of these diseases manifests characteristic signs on pinhole images that are comparable to radiographic signs. Granulocytes avidly accumulate in acute infective foci while lymphocytes accumulate primarily in chronic foci. Gallium-67 scans are non-specific, accumulating in both inflammatory and neoplastic lesions. In contrast, pinhole scintigraphy precisely localizes tracer uptake to the synovia, which cover the femoral head and acetabular fossa. Such uptake is due to an increase in blood flow through the anastomotic vascular channels in the inflamed synovium. The tracer uptake may be prominent in the active stage but rapidly returns to normal with rest and conservative treatment. It is to be noted that in the early stage with large synovial effusion, tracer uptake may become reduced due to ischaemia of the femoral head created by capsular distension. However, bone scintigraphy reveals an increased blood flow and blood pool in septic joints, and intense tracer uptake in the subchondral bone on static images in the early stages. The intensity of subchondral tracer uptake in acute pyogenic arthritis has been described as roughly paral- lelling the intensity of infection. Dual head pinhole scintigraphy produces a pair of either the anterior and posterior, or the medial and lateral, images, permitting a three dimensional analysis of the disease. Histologically, it is characterized by the derangement and eventual destruction of the cartilage and subchondral bone without obvious inflammation. Bone scintigraphs may show discrete unifocal or multifocal tracer uptake in subchondral bones, and can be spotty, patchy or segmental in type. Whole body bone scans are the only way to portray symmetric polyarthritis panoramically; spot views can depict characteristic changes in both large and small joints in great detail. Pinhole scintigraphy is useful in delineating many scintigraphic signs of rheumatoid arthritis. Nuclear angiography provides information on lesional vascularity and on the activity of the pathological process. Ankylosing spondylitis is a non- specific inflammatory disease of the sacroiliac joints and the spine. The disease primarily involves the synovial components of the sacroiliac joints and the cartilaginous discovertebral junctions as well as the apophyseal, costovertebral and neurocentral joints of the vertebrae. Planar bone scintigraphy reveals symmetric intense tracer uptake in the sacroiliac joints and/or spine. Pinhole scintigraphy can portray the characteristic ribbon-like tracer uptake in the synovial joints of the spine, producing a ‘bamboo spine’ appearance. In the late stage, tracer uptake becomes reduced, reflecting a quiescent metabolic state. The disease mechanism is still obscure, but an interaction between several different infective organisms and a specific genetic background is currently being given serious consideration. Pathologically, the main alterations are present in the enthesis, which is the site of insertion of a tendon, ligament or articular capsule into the bone, creating characteristic inflammatory enthesopathy. Conspicuous involvement of entheses in this syndrome sharply contrasts with the dominant involvement of the synovium in rheumatoid arthritis.
