Images of an 18-year-old male’s right leg produced with xSPECT Quant™ and xSPECT Bone™ (Siemens Healthineers), containing a giant cell tumour in the proximal fibula. Uptake in proximal tibio-fibular joint was concluded as normal as it was mild and reactive and no erosion could be seen. Siemens claim that xSPECT Bone™ offers improved image quality and lesion localisation through sharper edge delineation. But is there enough evidence to assume it can be routinely called upon to perform accurate and reproducible quantification to support important clinical decisions?
