Abstract

We assessed the value of bone scintigraphy combined with X-ray registration for the diagnosis and management of wrist pain in 65 patients. Studies were reported independently by two observers before and after registration. Registration improved localization of scan abnormalities in 53% (observer 1) and 61% (observer 2). In these patients, the bone scan contributed to the diagnosis independently of the X-ray in 37% and the management was altered in 31%. The value of the bone scan in the early diagnosis and management of wrist pain is increased when it is registered with X-rays. © 1997, SAGE Publications. All rights reserved.
