|the Semi-quantitative evaluation in accordance with the Planar scan is significantly lower precise comparing with SPECT/CT method. For the exact set of the disablement point range values and the level of activity the evaluation by SPECT/CT scan is necessary. In other case the patient would receive better validation comparing the reality, which might have impact on next medical treatment. The modern facility shall apply the SPECT/CT picture method only. The suggested method is Curie as compared the SIOPEN method. SIOPEN method does not cover the soft tissue and it cannot be applied for the patients who do not have infiltered Bones. The total numbers of such patients were 33% in this project. The alternative is SIOPEN method complemented by evaluation of soft tissue.
