Dysbarism-related osteonecrosis: proceedings of a symposium on dysbaric osteonecrosis. Beckman EL, Elliott DH, eds. Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHEW (NIOSH) Publication No. 75-153, 1974 Jan; :171-176
The sensitivity of radionuclide bone-scans were evaluated as an additional tool in the diagnosis of osteonecrosis. The properties of bone-seeking radionuclides strontium, technectium (7440268), and fluorine (7782414) were compared. Fluorine-18 was used to perform bone-scans on six divers.
