- Non metabolic disease of the bone. Out of control of the osteoclast. Uncommon, causing excessive destruction of the bone structure due to the overaction of the osteoclast.
- This procedure measures the bone density more accurately than the dual photon absorptiometry, takes less time, and emits less radiation to the patient.
- Predominately in females, fragile bones, loss of bone density, decreased levels of estrogen and calcium.
- Involves the intravenous injection of a radioisotope, which is absorbed by the bone. After approximately three hours, the skeleton is scanned with a gamma camera (scanner), moving from one end of the body to the other. The scanner detects the areas where the bone absorbs the isotope and converts the radioactive image to a screen where the concentrations show up as pinpoint dots cast in the image of a skeleton.
