Focal Tc-99m MDP uptake on bone scanning in regions of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is reported in two patients with documented DVT. It is speculated that this uptake may be related to localized calcification or ossification, which is occasionally observed on radiographs of patients with chronic DVT.
