Abstract Text

Our experiences with more than 2000 bone scintigrams in 803 tumour patients underline the high ranking of skeletal scintigraphy in oncology. Among our patients--who, as a matter of fact, represented a selected material--the rate of false negative scintigraphs was less than 1%. The incidence mentioned in literature is between 1 and 3% (6, 11, 38, 41). By balanced and differentiated assessment of bone scintigrams and analogous x-ray films (plain radiographs, spot-film radiographs, if necessary x-ray tomograms), taking into consideration storage anomalies in respect of localization, form and storage intensity, false-positive results can be reduced to a minimum; as a matter of fact, we believe that in oncology patients the quota of false-positive results can be reduced to less than 3%. In tumour patients, the question as to whether there are any bone metastases, can be correctly answered with a probability of about 96% by means of skeletal scintigraphic imaging and the analogous x-ray film as a complementary examination. The bone scintigram is excellently suited for effecting malignoma staging. It is, in fact, superior to all other methods. Skeletal scintigraphic imaging enables the identification of metastases earlier than any other method. It is the most sensitive primary search method which can be utilized for on-target application of x-ray diagnostic methods. Both solitary and multiple osseous metastases can be accurately localized by scintigraphy. The early identification of skeletal metastases in skeletal regions with endangered stability, is particularly important, since an impending spontaneous fracture can be prevented by osteosynthesis or local radiation therapy. Changes in the growth of metastases under radiation and/or chemotherapy can be reliably observed by scintigraphic follow-ups, and can be assessed to determine whether there is a continued growth or a remission. If scintigram and x-ray film are employed side by side--a procedure which is imperative during first examination and later with specific courses of the disease, the low grade specificity of scintigraphy is largely compensated by the x-ray method.
