    Abstract

    The role of a nuclear medicine diagnostic bone scan is well established and the influence of potential artifacts well documented. This case provides an insight into an unusual artifact associated with a tampon in situ and highlights the clinical relevance of single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography imaging in differentiating uncommon artifacts from potential pelvic pathology.
