The skeleton is an active organ that rebuilds constantly. A healthy skeleton with strong bones is essential to maintain overall health and quality of life. Bones protect our brain, heart and lungs from injury; they are the framework for muscles that allows us to move and store minerals important to their remodeling and strength.
Bone disease is a condition that damages the skeleton and makes the bones weak and prone to fractures. It is a real risk for women and men of all ethnicities at any age.
A bone scan is a nuclear imaging test that helps to diagnose damage to the bones, monitor problems such as infection and trauma, and locate cancer that has spread to the bones from a primary tumor elsewhere in the body such as breast, prostate, lung or kidney.
Bone cancer is relatively rare, accounting for 0.2% of all cancers.1 It can originate in the bone tissue as primary bone cancer, which can be either benign or malignant. More frequently, however, cancer from other parts of the body can metastasize and spread to the bones.2

Physicians may perform nuclear imaging tests that provide a view of the entire skeleton to diagnose and monitor bone cancer. These tests can also help physicians detect cancer that has spread from other sites in the body.
