Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am a radiation oncology cancer doctor and look at nuclear bone scans all the time in my patients.
do you have an image you can upload here?
how old are you?
why did you have this scan done?
do you have pain in your bones?
do you have a history of arthritis?
the monitor needs to be better windowed. the contrast is a bit bright.
but I suspect it is a normal scan.
I bet your bone scan report will come back normal. but without windowing, you can miss some arthritis in your lower back or legs
a CT scan is needed to check for pagets disease of the bone which is rare.
I told you that the brightness on the bone scan is nor properly windowed.
you have to wait for your bone scan report.
and your doctor also wants to get a CT scan of your bones as well.
you need to get copies of your blood work as well to check for rheumatoid arthritis and other spine inflammatory conditions.
you are welcome
