Abstract

Evaluation of the patient with osseous neoplasm has depended on the analysis and correlation of data gained from the patient’s history, physical examination, biochemical determinations, roentgenography, and microscopic examination of biopsy material, occasionally with less than conclusive results. With the recent development of appropriate instrumentation and radiopharmaceuticals, radionuclide imaging has emerged as an additional powerful tool in the study and evaluation of most pathologic processes involving the skeleton.
