Abstract

99mTc-tetrofosmin myocardial imaging was performed in a 62-year-old woman who had undergone standard radical mastectomy for right breast cancer 6 years ago. Although the result was negative for the ischemic heart disease, it showed abnormal accumulation corresponding to the bone metastases in the spine. We believe that 99mTc-tetrofosmin imaging is helpful in detecting bone metastases from breast cancer.
