“Hot” patella sign is a less commonly seen finding in bone scintigraphy defined as increased tracer activity in the patella greater than the ipsilateral distal femur and ipsilateral proximal tibia. We present a case of suprapatellar knee bursitis manifesting as unilateral “hot” patella sign on three-phase 99mTc-methylene diphosphonate bone scintigraphy. This case portrays the image findings of suprapatellar bursitis on three-phase bone scintigraphy.
