CT and nuclear medicine imaging in vertebral metastases

CT and nuclear medicine imaging in vertebral metastases

Clinical Nuclear Medicine 11(5): 334-336

Three cases are presented to illustrate the value of CT in elucidating the diagnosis in cancer patients presenting with complaints that are clinically highly suspicious for osseous metastases, where isotope bone imaging and conventional radiography failed to confirm the clinician's suspicion.
