The presence of this bone-forming reaction is also the condition for positivity of bone scintigraphy, which is an indirect way to detect tumor. It is not so infrequent to find on CT large lytic lesions that are not visible on bone scintiscans. Conventionnal radiographs detect sclerotic lesions more easily. The disappearance of these lesions with treatment could be misleading: it could be to the result of vanishing of the sclerotic changes due to lytic progression of the underlying lesion. Conversely, new sclerotic lesions appearing during treatment may be a sign of good response, with a sclerotic healing reaction around the lesion (5).
