[Utility of methoxy isobutyl isonitrile (MIBI) scintigraphy, ultrasound and computerized axial tomography in preoperative topographic diagnosis of hiperparathyroidism].

Abstract

OBJECTIVES 1. To assess the sensitivity of scintigraphy using methoxy isobutyl isonitrile (MIBI). 2. To compare its resolution with that of ultrasound (US) and computerized axial tomography (CAT). 3. To use its diagnostic reliability to determine whether selective approaches can be used to treat hyperparathyroidism (HPT). PATIENTS AND METHOD A study of 76… (More)
