Fourteen patients with slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) who had high-resolution and magnification bone scintigraphy during treatment were studied. By demonstrating the vascular status of the femoral head and physiologic condition of the growth plate, scintigraphy was found to assist the clinician in the management of patients with this disorder.
