It is very important to each a conclusive diagnosis to treat or manage the patient with the best possible treatment modalities, however a proper diagnosis is always a matter of concern, especially when the disease is highly progressive in nature and therefore needs a dynamic diagnostic assessment to understand the rate of disease progression to hinder the disease process at the earliest time period possible. Nuclear medicine imaging not only provides us with vital information about the structural configuration in static position but also functional information of the area of interest. The use of CT and MRI after image acquisition provides anatomical as well as physiological images which can be viewed independently or superimposed as ‘fused’ multi-planar reconstructions. The high sensitivity levels of nuclear imaging helps to detect even the feeblest pathophysiological changes which are of utmost importance in the process of diagnosis. The capability to detect minor changes at the initial stages itself makes it the preferential choice of diagnostic modality, however they are not the most preferred diagnostic modality owing to factors like reduced accessibility and awareness of the diagnostician, especially in the field of dentistry.
