Indications: The radiopharmaceutical 99mTc-MDP is intended for skeletal imaging utilizing radioactive properties of technetium-99m and the affinity of methylenediphosphonic acid to hydroxyapatite crystals which form inorganic structure of bone tissue.
Indications for scintigraphic examinations using 99mTc-MDP are as follows:
● detection of metastatic foci in skeletal system;
● imaging of altered bone metabolism in primary bone tumors;
● imaging of bone inflammation;
● imaging of post-traumatic lesions;
● imaging of rheumatoid lesions;
● imaging of aseptic necrosis;
● diagnosis of soft tissue diseases, eg. myositis ossificans;
● examination of repair processes in damaged bone tissue.
Use of the radiopharmaceutical for the aforementioned purposes enables precise localization and assessment of lesions extent.
