A 72-year-old male, a known case of carcinoma of prostate, had bilateral orchidectomy in 2002 and while on hormones developed multiple bone metastases in 2010. He was treated with 153 Samarium ethylene diamine tetra methylene phosphonate (EDTMP). The author compares the features of 99m Tc methylene diphosphonate (MDP) scan and 153 Sm EDTMP bone scan, highlighting the similarities of skeletal uptake.
