Bone scan or bone scintigraphy (BS) is among the earliest diagnostic applications in nuclear medicine imaging that remains useful today. Current bone-seeking radiotracers can be divided into those emitting gamma rays (imaged with gamma cameras) and those emitting positrons (imaged with PET/CT). Bone scanning can be useful in many clinical scenarios including trauma, infection, arthritis, and osseous metastatic disease.
