  • Figure 1
    Static bone scintigram

    Bone scintigram 2.5 h after 500 MBq Tc99 DPD. Disseminated skeletal metastases including a large right parietooccipital skull lesion in a case of prostate carcinoma.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal bone; Imaging Technique: Nuclear medicine conventional; Special Focus: Metastases;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    CCT
     

    Two representative transverse bone window CT slices showing an osteoblastic metastasis of the right parietooccipital calvarium with irregular borders of the tabula interna.

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Imaging Technique: CT; Special Focus: Metastases;

    Same slices as Fig. 1a with soft tissue windowing. There is a heterogeneous lesion in the right parietal and occipital lobe. No signs of brain displacement from the inner table.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Special Focus: Metastases;

    After iv contrast administration, a hypervascular mass with peripheral cystic components transgresses the meningeal border and spreads into the cortical and subcortical brain parenchyma.
