Figure 1: Technetium-99m-ethambutol scintigraphy diagnostic image of 27-year-old female with suspected spinal tuberculosis. Image single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography in os vertebra thoracolumbal produced at 3 h pasca-injection technetium-99m-ethambutol. Image show pathologic uptake of technetium-99m-ethambutol in os vertebra T7 that gradually increased with time. Positive technetium-99m-ethambutol scintigraphy was concordance with histopathologic finding postsurgery of paravertebral abscess (true positive)
