A number of recently published series were reviewed evaluating noninvasive localizing studies (ultrasound, thallium-technetium subtraction scintigraphy, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging) in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism and no previous surgery. The average true positive (%) and false positive (%) rates were (1) ultrasound, 66 and 12; (2) Th/Tc scanning 55 and 13; (3) computed tomography, 63 and inadequately documented; (4) magnetic resonance imaging, 75 and 18… CONTINUE READING
