Pubic pain syndrome in sportsmen: comparison of radiographic and scintigraphic findings

Eur J Nucl Med. 1984;9(6):250-3. doi: 10.1007/BF00803244.


We studied 32 cases of pubic pain in sportsmen and compared the radiographic and scintigraphic findings. Six case histories are presented in detail. The pubis/sacrum uptake ratio obtained by the use of scan techniques appears to be a useful parameter for following the evolution of the pain.
