According to findings discussed at the SNMMI Annual Meeting, NaF-PET/CT demonstrated higher sensitivity, specificity and positive and negative predictive value than planar bone scintigraphy and SPECT/CT in diagnosing bone metastases. The study also found that NaF-PET/CT resulted in fewer ambiguous scans than planar bone scintigraphy. More studies are needed to support a shift in strategy, researcher Johan Lofgren said.
