Abstract

Bone scanning is an essential technique in the diagnosis of metastatic lesions in bone seeking cancers and is particularly important in prostate cancer, in which up to 60% of patients develop bony metastases. The bone scan aims to confirm or exclude metastatic bone lesions at diagnosis, during the follow-up and to aid in evaluating the efficiency of hormonal treatment. We have paid particular attention to this last point using a quantitative method which has allowed us to determine the variations of isotope uptake in the metastases.
