    basically, what it showed in the results where the areas where I had arthritis buildup. It was in both my shoulders and hips. Since then, the arthritis did do its work and I eventually had to have both shoulders totally replaced in 2010 and one hip in 2011 and just had the other hip totally replaced in October 2013.
    So, the bone scan (at least for me) was a warning sign of what was to come, it terms of arthritis.
