OBJECTIVE To evaluate the usefulness of the combination of Tc-sestamibi/Tc-pertechnetate subtraction scintigraphy (SS) and high-resolution neck ultrasonography (US) in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) undergoing parathyroidectomy. DESIGN AND METHODS Ninety-one patients with proved pHPT were studied, excluding patients with persistent or recurrent disease. There were 65 (71.4%) women and 26 (28.6%) men, with a median age of 59 years (range 18-78 years). All patients underwent… CONTINUE READING
