Meckel's diverticulum is a relatively common source of gastrointestinal tract morbidity in children. Individuals may present with symptoms of lower gastrointestinal tract bleeding, bowel obstruction or diverticulitis. Technetium-99 m pertechnetate scintigraphy is used to demonstrate those Meckel's diverticula that contain heterotopic gastric mucosa. We present a case of an adolescent male patient with rectal bleeding and suspected Meckel's diverticulum where the use of SPECT/CT fusion imaging provided valuable diagnostic information and prevented a false-negative study.
