Figure 3:(a) Plane radiograph of the left foot, reported as “Mild soft tissue swelling and small skin ulceration at the base of the 5th metatarsal, lateral foot. No evidence of osteomyelitis.” (b) Time-activity curve after drawing region of interest in different segments of a technetium-99m-methylene diphosphonate flow image for comparison and to confirm generalized increased flow. (c) Technetium-99m-methylene diphosphonate pool and delayed images indicating generalized increased retention of radiotracer in the pool images (upper row) and focal retention of radiotracer in the region of the left 5th metatarsal base on delayed images (lower row). (d) Time-activity curve after drawing region of interest in different segments of a gallium-67 flow image for comparison and to confirm generalized increased flow. (e) Gallium-67 pool and 24 h delayed images indicating generalized increased retention of radiotracer in the pool images (upper row) and focal retention of radiotracer in the region of the left 5th metatarsal base on delayed images (lower row). (f) Gallium-67 pool and 48 h delayed images indicating focal retention of radiotracer in the region of the left 5th metatarsal base
