Prosthetic joint infections: radionuclide state-of-the-art imaging
European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging, 03/02/2012
Gemmel F et al. – The emergence of hybrid modality imaging using integrated single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and PET with computed tomography (SPECT/CT and PET/CT) may also have a contributing role for more accurate assessment of joint replacement complications, especially combined with new radiotracers such as 68Ga and 64Cu. Finally, in searching for infection–specific tracers, currently there is no such diagnostic agent available.
