Accurate preoperative localization of parathyroid adenomas with C-11 methionine PET/CT.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Focused unilateral or minimally invasive parathyroidectomy for primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) depends on the successful preoperative localization of parathyroid adenomas. The aim of this prospective study was to determine the accuracy of C-11 methionine positron emission tomography/computed tomography (Met-PET/CT), a novel localization… (More)
