Early Detection of Bone Lesions by Photoscanning with Radioactive Strontium-87m

Conference:

Abstract

Patients with proven and suspected bone lesions were scanned from 30 min to 3 h after an intravenous injection of 400 {mu}Ci to 1 mCi of {sup 87m}Sr. Many different types of bone tumours were detected, such as osteogenic sarcoma and metastatic cancer of breast, thyroid, lung and other organs. {sup 87m}Sr photoscanning easily demonstrates obvious tumours of the bone which have been visualized on the roentgenogram, but the most important purpose of the present study is the visualization of lesions which were not demonstrated on the conventional roentgenogram. The analysis of the examined cases is discussed. (author)
