Review xSPECT Clinical Cases
Spinous Process Similar to Baastrup’s Sign
Advanced tissue delineation and confidence with xSPECT
64-year-old male with focal back pain in the lower spine. CT demonstrated facet joint arthrosis while facet joint injection at L5 did not alleviate pain. The bone scan was performed to identify additional pathology as the cause of pain.
Known facet joint arthrosis with mild focal uptake only, additional focal uptake in spinous process at L3 with small fracture line demonstrated in the CT study. xSPECT Bone delivered clearly delineated Baastrup-like uptake along with the fracture.
Symbia Intevo 16, 26.9 mCi [668 MBq] 99mTc MDP, 3h post injection, 109 eff mAs, 110 KV, 45 stops, 25 sec/stop, xSPECT Bone.
