Abstract

Abstract Extraosseous tumor uptake of bone imaging agents is a fairly frequent phenomenon but the exact mechanism of the phenomenon remains uncertain. We are reporting a case of uptake of [ 99 m Tc]MDP in malignant melanoma metastatic to the liver and present a gamut for the localization of bone imaging radiopharmaceuticals within the liver. The proposed mechanisms of uptake in hepatic tumors are reviewed.
