Overview

This book emphasizes the tremendous value of pinhole scintigraphy in diagnosing nearly the whole spectrum of bone and joint diseases. Pinhole scintigraphy discloses anatomic and pathologic as well as chemical alterations in greater detail, permitting analytical interpretation and raising sensitivity. Infections, nonspecific bone inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, seronegative spondyloarthropathies, rheumatic disorders, metabolic and endocrine bone diseases, trauma, and both primary tumors and metastases can be effectively and specifically examined. By improving sensitivity, many false-negative readings can be avoided in early bone metastasis, synovitis, enthesopathies, bone contusion, etc. In addition, this 2nd, revised and enlarged edition introduces two new pinhole scintigraphic techniques, dual-head pinhole scintigraphy and pinhole SPECT.
