A case of parathyroid carcinoma visualized on Tc-99m-sestamibi scintigraphy.

Abstract

Recent studies indicate that Tc-99m-Sestamibi (MIBI, DuPont Pharma) is a useful tracer for detecting parathyroid adenomas. We present a patient with focal Tc-99m-MIBI uptake in parathyroid carcinoma which has only been described once before (1).
