BACKGROUND Parathyroid adenomas, the most common cause of primary hyperparathyroidism, are benign tumours which autonomously produce and secrete parathyroid hormone. [(18)F]-fluorocholine (FCH), PET marker of cellular proliferation, was recently demonstrated to accumulate in lesions representing enlarged parathyroid tissue; however, the optimal time to(More)
AIM Inflammation is highlighted in the pathogenesis and destabilization of atherosclerotic lesions. Noninvasive identification of inflammation of atherosclerotic lesions has been challenging. 18-Fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) is a useful technique for detecting inflamed atherosclerotic plaques in vivo. However, it is time(More)
