A Anterior pinhole scintigraph of the left elbow reveals increased tracer uptake in the olecranon process (op), medial (me) and lateral epicondyles (le), coronoid process (cp), and head of the radius (rh). B Anteroposterior radiograph identifies the olecranon process (op), medial and lateral epicondyles (me, le), coronoid process (cp) and the head of the radius (rh) pubic bone or obliquity of the pinhole collimator axis may result in a drastic change in appearance (Fig. 26). The iliac crests and auricular surfaces are visualized to advantage in the posterior scan.
In the posterior view the vertebral endplates, the disk spaces, and the spinous processes, and the apophyseal joints are all clearly portrayed (Fig. 17). In general the transverse processes accumulate tracer only faintly because they are small and thin. It is to be pointed out that the disk spaces are partly obscured by the spinous process in the midline and the facet joint in the sides. In the thoracic spine, the posterior scan additionally reveals the costovertebral and costotransverse joints (Fig.
