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.
