Sodium fluoride (NaF) is a bone-seeking positron-emitting tracer with high sensitivity and specificity for detection of osseous lesions, particularly osteolytic lesions. We believe that NaF positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) scans can provide a more thorough and conclusive evaluation of bone diseases than conventional Technetium-99m-methylene diphosphonate bone scans. Understanding both normal and pathologic patterns is important for the evaluation and interpretation of these studies. Thus, an atlas of NaF positron emission tomography/computed tomography bone scans demonstrating benign, pathologic, and malignant osseous lesions as well as extraosseous lesions will be invaluable in the correct interpretation and diagnosis of osseous lesions.
