In addition to two focal areas of abnormally **increased uptake** in the right lung, the Tc-99m depreotide SPECT showed cold areas in the middle thoracic vertebrae. Photopenic areas in the 6th and 7th thoracic vertebrae were shown on a bone scintigraphy. T1 weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the spine showed fatty replacement of the marrow and Schmorl's nodes involving the 5th to 11th thoracic vertebrae.....

METHODS: The patients were 24 renal allograft recipients who underwent both bone SPECT and MRI within 1 mo of each other because of hip pain but normal findings on plain radiography. SPECT was considered positive for osteonecrosis when a cold defect was detected in the femoral head, and the defect was further classified according to the presence of adjacent **increased uptake**: type 1 = a cold defect with no adjacent **increased uptake**; type 2 = a cold defect with adjacent **increased uptake**. MRI was considered positive for osteonecrosis when a focal region with low signal intensity on T1 images was detected in the femoral head. Final diagnoses were made by surgical pathology.....
