Özet

Quantitative bone scintigraphy is a useful method to diagnose sacroiliitis. However, there is significant overlap between healthy and pathological sacroiliac index (SI) values for adult patients, while there are no such sufficient data for children. This study was aimed mainly to assess normal SI values in different age groups of pediatric patients using 2 different quantitative methods.
