NaF Bone Scan (PET/CT)
In order to better serve our referring physicians and their patients, Nebraska Advanced Radiology is in the process of expanding the services they currently offer. The PET/CT Scan is one of many new service offered by the clinic.
The Nebraska Advanced Radiology offers multiple kinds of PET/CT Scans, including the NaF (Sodium Fluoride) Bone Scan and the 18F-FDG PET/CT Scan.
The NaF (Sodium Fluoride) Bone Scan is an extremely useful tool in detecting and evaluating metastatic bone cancer. NaF is superior to a Tc99MDP as it has higher sensitivity, higher specificity and accuracy, as well as a shorter uptake time and scan time. This makes it very useful for accurately detecting bone lesions.
