Metatarsal Metastasis From Lung Cancer Read as a Benign Process on Tc-99m MDP ScintigraphyDuarte, Paulo S., MDClinical Nuclear Medicine: June 2007 - Volume 32 - Issue 6 - p 501-503 doi: 10.1097/RLU.0b013e31805375fb Interesting Image Buy Abstract Author InformationAuthors Article MetricsMetrics A 61-year-old man with lung cancer who underwent Tc-99m MDP bone scintigraphy for staging of the disease is presented. Tc-99m MDP bone scintigraphy was initially read as normal for the patient's age and a left metatarsal bone uptake was interpreted as a benign process. Magnetic resonance imaging of the left foot performed a few months later due to local pain revealed a lesion at the base of the third metatarsal. The surgical excision of this region showed a metastasis from a lung cancer. From the Section of Nuclear Medicine, Fleury—Centro de Medicina Diagnóstica, São Paulo, Brazil.
