This may produce a variegated imaging appearance with lucent zones in bone showing ground-glass transformation (soap-bubble pattern; see Case 7). Because areas of fibrous dysplasia usually undergo constant remodeling, they typically appear as “hot spots” on bone scintigraphy. Ground-glass attenuation is also the hallmark of fibrous dysplasia on CT scans (▶ Fig.
