Figure 5: A 67-year-old known case of chronic myeloid leukemia had backache. Plain radiograph was normal. Bone scan revealed D12 vertebra showed linear uptake suggesting osteoporotic collapse. Whole body study revealed diffuse increased tracer localization in the axial and appendicular skeleton. Hyperactive bone marrow was probably responsible for such a pattern that simulated metabolic bone disease. Please note diminished tracer localization in the kidneys
