Abstract

Objective: Bone metastasis is a major cause of morbidity in prostatic cancer. Therefore, detecting and monitoring bone lesions are crucial for treatment of prostatic carcinoma. We aimed to evaluate total body bone mineral density and regional bone mineral density in patients with prostate cancer with and without metastases, and to compare them with bone scintigraphy.
