Differential Diagnosis • • • • Osteosarcoma Ewing sarcoma Metastatic lesion Myositis ossificans Diagnosis and Clinical Follow-Up Radiographs of the right humerus (Fig. 2) showed cortical erosion, a large soft tissue mass, and an aggressive periosteal reaction with a “hair-on-end” appearance. Post-gadolinium fat saturation coronal MRI (Fig. 3) showed a large soft tissue component underestimated by both skeletal scintigraphy and radiography. The patient underwent surgical excision for Ewing sarcoma.
1). Fig. 1 Technique • • • • A 20 mCi dose of 99mTc-MDP is administered intravenously. Whole-body images of the skeleton are obtained 3 hours after tracer administration. A 1024 × 256 matrix is used for whole-body images. Emphasize the importance of oral hydration to improve soft tissue and bladder clearance. Image Interpretation A whole-body image in the anterior projection (Fig. 1) shows diffuse mild uptake of tracer throughout the peritoneal cavity, with more focal moderate uptake within the periphery.
A mixed phase, in which the proliferative phase overlaps the resorptive phase, can also occur, as shown in this case on the skull radiographs. The incidence of malignant transformation in pagetoid bone is low. When the patient experiences pain in the involved bone, however, further evaluation for malignant transformation is warranted. Pearls and Pitfalls • • • If malignant change is suspected in a patient with known Paget disease, radiographic investigation is required. Sarcomatous changes in a bone already involved with Paget disease may show a relative absence of tracer localization.
