Bone scanning with technetium-99m is a very useful adjunct in the evaluation of tumor stage.

It aids in the detection of bone metastatic or polyostotic disease. For fibrosarcoma, bone scanning has largely been supplanted by MRI. The main limitation of bone scanning is that it often is nonspecific.
