Overview

Bone scintigraphy may be helpful in selected ankylosing spondylitis patients with normal or equivocal findings on sacroiliac joint radiographs. The ratio of SI joint to sacral uptake of 1.3:1 or higher of the radionuclides is considered abnormal.

Other imaging findings

Bone scintigraphy

  • May be helpful in selected patients with normal or equivocal findings on sacroiliac joint radiographs
  • Qualitative assessment of accumulation of radionuclides in the SI joints may be difficult due to normal uptake in this location. Thus quantitative analysis may be more useful.
  • Ratios of SI joint to sacral uptake of 1.3:1 or higher is abnormal
