    • Bone Scan
    • Cardiac Scan
    • Thyroid Scan

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. ...a purely lytic metastasis.
    2. ...a strictly blastic metastasis.
    3. ...osteomyelitis.
    4. ...osteoarthritis.
    5. ...a fracture.
    1. Technetium-99m is used as a radioisotope.
    2. Images are obtained after about 2 hours after injection.
    3. Sensitivity for metastases is lesser than an MRI.
    4. It is specific for fracture, degenerative changes, metastases and osteomyelitis.
    5. Blastic metastases appear as decreased uptake of the radiotracer.
    1. Increased uptake of the radiotracer in the surrounding bone as well.
    2. Multiple asymmetric areas of increased uptake.
    3. Radiotracer uptake is more in the areas with the greatest bone turnover.
    4. Blastic metastases demonstrate increased uptake.
    5. Lytic lesions may be missed on bone scans due to decreased bone turnover.
    1. Technetium-99 sestamibi
    2. Technetium-99m terabenzene
    3. Technetium-99r pertechnetate
    4. Thallium-221
    5. Radioactive iodine
    1. …ischemia.
    2. …infarction.
    3. …wall motion abnormality.
    4. …cardiac tumor.
    5. …cardiac hypertrophy.
    1. Carcinoma.
    2. Multinodular goiter.
    3. Solitary hyperfunctioning nodule.
    4. Thyroid cyst.
    5. Inflammatory nodule.
