what is sclerotic vertebra

i had an ex-ray for my lungs(all  is ok) and they saw a shadow on my spine which they believe is sclerotic D8/9 vertebra.
should i have a bone scan or another ex-ray? from what i understand the bone scan cannot differentiate between
a lesion or tumor or cartilage. i also have osteoporosis/osteopenia but mainly in my right hip.

what are they looking for then in a bone scan?
