Assessment of A Software for Semi-Automatically Calculating the Bone Scan Index on Bone Scintigraphy Scans

The incidence of bone metastases exceeds 85% in patients who die of prostate cancer. Therefore, it is important to diagnose bone metastases from prostate cancer using bone scintig- raphy. We developed a software program that semi-automatically calculates the bone scan index (BSI) on 99mTechnetium-hydroxymethylene diphosphonate bone scintigraphy scans with a computer-aided diagnosis system (VSBONE® BSI). …
