Abstract

Foci of experimental septic osteomyelitis became radioactive after the intravenous injection of 67Ga citrate. With this method, bone infection can be detected much earlier than with roentgenography. Because of its short half-life, 67Ga may be a suitable isotope for the detection of clinical, primary osteomyelitis in its early stages.
