Tram-track sign (bone)

Last revised by Rohit Sharma on 25 Apr 2019

The tram-track sign is sometimes seen on delayed bone scan images. They can appear as symmetric linear increase in tracer accumulation along diaphyseal and metaphyseal surfaces of long bones. Corresponding to similar periosteal reaction seen on radiographs. Bone scan findings precede radiographic findings by many weeks.
