Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Extraosseous radioactivity outside of the expected biodistribution is often encountered on 99mTc-methylene diphosphate (MDP) bone scintigraphy, and proper interpretation requires an understanding of the mechanisms underlying this uptake and knowledge of the possible causes, depending on the site or structure involved. CONCLUSION. We present examples of extraosseous radiotracer uptake seen on 99mTc-MDP bone scans in which either SPECT with integrated CT or correlative imaging improved the study's interpretation.
