I am 29 years old and scared as hell right now.
Nuclear medicine triple phase bone scan, hands, 10/12/2016 12:09 PM
Indication: Cellulitis of right index finger
Comparison: No previous bone scan. MRI finger, 9/15/2016.
Technique: The study was performed with 23.6 mCi of Tc 99m MDP given intravenously in the left arm. Angiographic, blood pool, and delayed bone scintigrams were obtained.
Findings: Angiographic phase shows mild increased flow to the right hand.
The blood pool images show increased soft tissue uptake to the mid portion of the right 2nd finger.
The delayed bone scan shows focal increased uptake at the PIP joint of the right 2nd finger.
Impression: There is increased uptake at the PIP joint of the right 2nd (index) finger on all 3 phases. This is most likely from acute osteomyelitis.
