Figure 4 : 64-year-old lady post mastectomy for breast cancer being evaluated for backache. 99mTc MDP scan (top panel) shows increased tracer uptake in the dorsal vertebrae. A fluoride PET/CT study (bottom panel) confirms the metastatic nature of the lesions corresponding to the sclerotic vertebrae on the CT component (arrows). Additional foci of uptake are noted in other vertebrae (arrowheads) on the fluoride PET-CT
