Abstract

To determine whether technetium diphosphonate scintigraphy could be used to date vertebral crush fractures, serial scintigrams and radiographs were obtained on two groups of 27 osteoporotic patients. Although radiologically crushed vertebrae were significantly associated with areas of increased isotope uptake on the scintigrams (p
