Abstract

The potential role of the nuclear medicine diagnostic bone scan in identifying herniation pits of the femoral neck is yet to be adequately described. The following cases show incidental findings of subcortical cavities of the femoral neck detected on bone scans. These findings highlight the potential role of the bone scan as a useful imaging modality in identifying and stratifying herniation pits based on physiology, particularly with the addition of single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography to the armamentarium.
