Ayman S. Z. Alwi, Suhaib Alameen, Mohamed E. M. Gar-Elnabi


Abstract: Background Prostate cancer is one of the most common diseases in the world. can primarily disseminate to the bone, causing bone metastases, which in turn can lead to death. To treat the disease, it is important to diagnose bone metastases as soon as possible. Bone metastases are diagnosed usually by bone scan imaging (Gamma Camera). However, interpretation of bone scan images is not always an easy task for physicians. One way of minimizing the risk of misinterpretation is quantitative analysis of bone scan images in order to ascertain whether they show any metastatic lesions, and if so, to what extent. The aim of the thesis was to assessment of osteoporosis in patients with prostate cancer using Gamma Camera and computed radiography (x. ray). Methods patients osteoporosis with prostate cancer imaging with gamma camera and computed radiography (x. ray), analysing the image with Interactive Data Language IDL software version 6.1 to measure the grey level variation of images with spine and hip area, data was available for 200 patients, 100 patients with x. ray images for hip and spine and 100 for patients with bone scan using Gamma Camera. Results The mean of up normal G. C hip and normal CR for hip regions was 630.6792.64 and 619.6786.39, and the mean for up normal G. C spine and normal CR spine the mean was 582.5787.57 and 598.7773.34. Using T. Test show that there is significant difference between normal CR and up normal G. C for hip regions (0.00). And between normal CR and up normal G. C spine (0.00). Linear regression results show that the rate of change between normal CR hip and up normal G. C hip Increasing by 0.8301. And 0.6607 for normal CR and up normal G. C spine. conclusion there is significant difference between normal CR and up normal G. C for hip regions, and between normal CR and up normal G. C spine, and the rate of change increasing for normal CR and up normal G. C spine.
