“…BSc is one of the most frequently performed of all radionuclide procedures [11]. It is widely used, relatively cheap, well tolerated and has an accuracy of more than 90% [12]. It is useful in scanning osteonecrosis in SCD patients, one of the main complications of this disease.…”

“…A serious complication of bacterial endocarditis is the mycotic aneurysm. The patient with a suspected mycotic aneurysm is best managed by combining anatomic imaging, to localize the aneurysm, with labeled leukocyte imaging, to determine whether or not infection is present (Palestro et al, 1999). Labeled leukocyte imaging is the radionuclide procedure of choice for diagnosing prosthetic vascular graft infection.…”

“…The specificity is more variable ranging from 53% to 100%. False positive results are associated with perigraft hematomas, graft thrombosis, bleeding, and pseudo-aneurysms (Palestro et al, 1999).…”

“…32 The use of the combination of dynamic bone scintigraphy (3 phases) + labelled leucocytes is accepted as a method which has good diagnostic efficacy (between 79 and 100%) for infectious processes in the peripheral skeleton at the clinical level. 33,34 However, the efficacy of this strategy decreases in the presence of:…”
