    The role of nuclear medicine diagnostic bone scanning is well established, and the potential for detecting incidental findings is well-known. This case provides an insight into the specific role bone scanning plays in unraveling a complex clinical case. Furthermore, it highlights the importance of single-photon emission computed tomography in differentiating benign from malignant findings, particularly when subtle. The case is an excellent example of a rare disease (adult testicular embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma) requiring correlative imaging and histology for diagnosis.
