Tc-99m sestamibi scintigraphy in multiple myeloma
Tc-99m sestamibi imaging was performed in two patients with multiple myeloma. Focal areas of increased uptake in one patient and diffuse skeletal uptake in the second patient were found. Tc-99m sestamibi appears to identify bone marrow and osteolytic involvement in multiple myeloma.
