Case Discussion

This older male patient was admitted following trauma, for which a body CT was undertaken.  He had no known history of malignancy.

The reporting radiologist commented on the sclerotic nature of the bones.   A radioisotope bone scan and serum PSA levels were subsequently taken and both consistent with metastatic prostate carcinoma.
