Abstract

Serial bone scans were compared with radiological skeletal surveys and acid phosphatase in the follow-up of 60 patients with prostatic carcinoma. In this study the bone scan proved to be a more accurate monitor than the other indices. It is concluded that the bone scan in prostatic cancer is the most helpful routine monitor of this disease.
