Image Interpretation Extraosseous uptake of tracer is shown over the left side of the chest on the anterior whole-body image (Fig. 1). Left anterior oblique projection confirms the intrathoracic location (Fig. 2).

Prostate cancer may also be associated with urinary tract obstruction by tumor at the prostate, unrelated prostatic hypertrophy, or local pelvic nodal metastases. Abnormal amounts of tracer retained in the ureters or renal pelves should be mentioned in the dictated report, and the patient should be questioned about symptoms of obstruction. It is not uncommon that back pain suspected to be caused by bony metastasis is subsequently found to be caused by urinary tract obstruction initially discovered on the bone scan.
