Abstract

Purpose of review: The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of primary bone malignancies and the role of PET/CT in their diagnosis, staging, and follow-up. Recent findings: PET/CT provides both anatomic and metabolic data; for this reason, the technique has been increasingly used to characterize, stage, and follow up bone lesions. Summary: PET/CT can be performed using different radiotracers and different techniques. Here, the application of single whole-body 18F-FDG and 18F-NaF PET as well as the acquisition methods for characterizing bone tumors is reviewed.
