SPECT/CT in differentiation of pseudarthrosis from other causes of back pain in lumbar spinal fusion: report on 10 consecutive cases
|Published in||Clinical nuclear medicine. 2012, vol. 37, no. 4, p. 339-343|
|Abstract||SPECT fused with computed tomography (CT) provides a new approach for more accurate diagnosis of pseudathrosis after spinal fusion procedures. The aim of this study was to compare the findings of SPECT fused with CT (SPECT/CT) with those of CT alone for the diagnosis of pseudarthrosis.|
