Bone scintigraphy: The patients received an intravenous injection of 540-740 MBq Technetium-99m (99mTc) methylene diphosphonate
. Approximately 3 hours later, they underwent a whole-body planar imaging in the anterior and posterior views on a dual-headed gamma camera (Infinia II GP & Hawkeye 4) fitted with a low-energy, all-purpose, parallel-hole collimator.
Bone scintigraphy with [.sup.99m]Tc-methylene diphosphonate
revealed increased osteoblastic activity in the manubriosternal, bilateral sternocostoclavicular, and lower cervical vertebral regions (Figure 1a).

99m technetium methylene diphosphonate
bone scintigraphy did not reveal any sacroiliac joint involvement.
([sup.99m]Tc-MDP) bone scan revealed a focus of intense tracer uptake in the proximal ulna [Figure 3b].
