To identify frequent MRI features of parathyroid adenomas (PTAs) in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) using a fast protocol with a 3 T magnet. Thirty-eight patients with PHPT underwent a 3 T-MR. All patients had positive US and Tc-99 sestamibi, for a total number of 46 PTAs. T2-weighted IDEAL-FSE and T1 IDEAL-sequences, before and after contrast, were performed. Five features of PTAs were recognised: hyperintensity, homogeneous or "marbled" appearance and elongated morphology on… CONTINUE READING
