Title: Simple model for anatomic bone scanning studies

Abstract

A simple anatomic model for studying the scintigraphic appearance of various skeletal structures is described. The technique makes use of the fact that technitium pyrophosphate uptake in bone occurs by chemisorption to the surface of crystals in the bone matrix. By soaking clean bones in solutions of technetium pyrophosphate they can be rendered radioactive and subsequently studied by various imaging techniques.
