Abstract

Objective We observed an unusually increased scrotal uptake as an interesting finding in some patients with prostate cancer who were scanned for any possible metastatic disease. This study was designed to investigate the significance of this incidental finding in the technetium-99m methylene diphosphonate scintigraphies.
