Abstract

Skeletal scintigraphy has a significant role in the initial diagnosis, staging, restaging, and treatment monitoring of patients with cancer and primary skeletal or metastatic disease. The coupling of diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine agents in the setting of osteoblastic skeletal metastases is a valuable tool for the treatment for certain cancer types, including prostate cancer, and may become more widely used to treat other histologies as more data on other tumor types (eg, breast cancer, osteosarcoma) become available.
