Abstract

Currently the progress of treatment in Paget's disease is monitored by observation of selected biochemical data. Collection of precise urine specimens for hydroxyproline involves hospitalization and two days for analysis. A project is presently under way which utilizes a mini-computer and disc storage on-line to a gamma camera. This permits quantitation of abnormal against normal bone uptake of 87Srm (radiostrontium nitrate) in assessing the effectiveness of such agents as disodium etidronate in treating patients with advanced Paget's disease.
