PMID:  962011     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Some features of facial anatomy have been identified on 99mTc polyphosphate bone scans by a comparison of scans, radiographs, and photographs. 99mTc polyphosphate bone scans are used clinically to show bone injury and increased osteoblastic activity; the primary use is to identify malignancy and other diseases involving bone. A knowledge of normal anatomy is of the utmost importance in the accurate interpretation of bone scans of the face.
