The aim of this study was to optimise the parameters affecting the Bremsstrahlung scintigraphy of patients injected with strontium-89 chloride. The parameters considered were: (1) instrumental detection efficiency, and (2) tissue attenuation factor for89Sr calibrated sources, which permit quantitative evaluation of the activity in a given bone lesion. Some typical examples of in vivo89Sr imaging are presented to illustrate the clinical utility of the imaging procedure developed by us, which is implemented in our department for all patients treated with89Sr chloride.
