Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the association between facial pain and maxillofacial scintigraphy. Methods: A total of 117 patients with idiopathic facial pain (IFP) (88% females; average age = 46.7 years) underwent 99mTc-MDP scans, as did 32 age-matched controls. Pearson χ2 analysis was used to determine associations. Results: Of subject quadrants, 63% were painful (average duration: 5.4 years); 79% of painful quadrants had positive 99mTc-MDP scans, i.e., "hot spots," significantly different from 13% in nonpainful quadrants (P
