Tc-99m-methylene diphosphonate (MDP) bone scintigraphy is mainly directed toward identifying sites of altered skeletal metabolism and abnormal foci of calcium phosphate deposition due to various etiologies. One of the requirements of an ideal bone scintigraphy is little or no extraosseous uptake. Nonosseous uptake of MDP in the bone scintigraphy is an unusual finding. We report a case of carcinoma prostate referred for bone scan, where diffuse hepatic and splenic uptake has been seen on the bone scan. However, on a further repeat bone scan, there was no nonosseous uptake.
