Abstract

Scintigraphy using hexakis (2-methoxyisobutylisonitrile) technetium (I) [Tc-MIBI] was performed in a patient with osteosarcoma of the right tibia. Increased accumulation of Tc-MIBI was observed in the primary site of the tumor as well as in metastatic lesion of the right inguinal lymph nodes, which were later confirmed by biopsy.
