Abstract [en]

We were able to see the difference in bone activity ofdifferent parts of the leg over the course of a patient’s therapy. In one patient, we detected at 52 days that the fibula had an SUVmax of 66 while the tibia had an SUVmax of 14, indicating that the fibula was healing much faster than the tibia. The surgeon had to intervene, re-breaking and distracting the fibula. At 94days after the initial surgery, both bones had a more comparable activity (with an SUVmax of 37 and 24 respectively). This study has lead to the use of PET/CT imaging to assess the early clinical state of the bone remodelling process.
