Objective: We compared the efficacies of 18F-fluoride positron emission tomography (18F-fluoride PET)/CT, 18F- fludeoxyglucose PET (18F-FDG PET)/CT, and 99mTc bone scintigraphy [planar and single photon emission CT (SPECT)] for the detection of bone metastases in patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). Methods: We examined 11 patients (8 females and 3 males; mean age ± standard deviation, 61.9 ± 8.7 years) with DTC who had been suspected of having bone metastases after total thyroidectomy and were hospitalized to be given 131I therapy. Bone metastases were verified either when positive findings were obtained on both 131I scintigraphy and CT or when MRI findings were positive if MRI was performed. Results: Metastases were confirmed in 24 (13.6%) of 176 bone segments in 9 (81.8%) of the 11 patients. The sensitivities of 18F-fluoride PET/CT and 99mTc bone scintigraphy (SPECT) were significantly higher than those of 18F-FDG PET/CT and 99mTc bone scintigraphy (planar) (p , 0.05). The accuracies of 18F- fluoride PET/CT and 99mTc bone scintigraphy (SPECT) were significantly higher than that of 99mTc bone scintigraphy (planar) ( p < 0.05). Conclusion: The sensitivity and accuracy of 18F-fluoride PET/CT for the detection of bone metastases of DTC are significantly higher than those of 99mTc bone scintigraphy (planar). However, the sensitivity and accuracy of 99mTc bone scintigraphy (planar) are improved near to those of 18F-fluoride PET/CT when SPECT is added to a planar scan. The sensitivity of 18F-FDG PET/CT is significantly lower than that of 18F-fluoride PET/CT or 99mTc bone scintigraphy (SPECT). Advances in knowledge: This article has demonstrated first the high efficacy of 18F-fluoride PET/CT for the detection of bone metastases of DTC.
