PURPOSE (11)C-Methionine PET/CT (Met-PET/CT) is a useful imaging method for detection of parathyroid adenoma; however, the reported detection rate has been variable. The current study was intended to investigate detection sensitivity and preoperative localization of parathyroid adenoma (PA) or parathyroid hyperplasia (PH) on Met-PET/CT compared with (99m)Tc… CONTINUE READING
