Gamma Correction Pinhole Bone Scan Diagnosis in 4th Edition

  • Yong-Whee Bahk
Chapter

Abstract

Gamma correction pinhole bone scan is a recently developed image processing algorithm that can efficiently extract fine pathoanatomical changes in a large number of bone diseases with bland uptake of 99mTc-hydroxymethylene diphosphonate (HDP) (Bahk et al. 2010; Bahk et al. 2011). This chapter discusses extended application of gamma correction pinhole scan to the diagnosis of various fractures, cervical sprain, whiplash injury, edema bone diseases, osteoporosis, avascular osteonecrosis, fish vertebra, noninfective osteitides, osteomyelitis, benign and malignant bone tumors, and tumorous diseases of bone.

Keywords

Tracer Uptake Spinous Process Fibrous Dysplasia Bone Marrow Edema Conventional Radiography 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
