Homogenous = normal: The term "homogenous" means something similar to consistent or equal. If there is homogenous uptake throughout the skeleton it means there are no abnormal areas of "high uptake" or "hot spots" such as bone cancers. Therefore, homogenous uptake in the skeleton is considered normal. Still, have a discussion with the doctor who ordered the scan as they will have a better understanding of your case.

Normal : This means there is no irregular uptake anywhere and this is good news. It is a normal bone scan
