A 39-year-old lady with carcinoma breast (stage T3 N1 M) had a bone scan to rule out osseous metastases. There was abnormal focal tracer concentration seen in the region of transverse process of L5 vertebrae on the right side. A repeat spot image of the pelvis done 24 hours later, revealed no abnormal tracer concentration in the above region. We conclude that additional delayed image may be required in such situation.
