Abstract

The authors review the scintigraphic manifestations of acute osteomyelitis, septic arthritis, transient synovitis, Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease, fractures of toddlers, and some systemic conditions that cause skeletal symptoms during childhood. They offer suggestions regarding incorporation of skeletal scintigraphy into a multimodality approach for assessing children with skeletal symptoms.
