PURPOSE To determine the appropriate choice of imaging techniques for localization of nodular lesions of parathyroid glands. MATERIALS AND METHODS First, computed tomographic (CT), magnetic resonance (MR), ultrasonographic (US), and technetium 99m methoxyisobutyl-isonitrile (MIBI) scintigraphic images in 49 patients with primary hyperparathyroidism were retrospectively evaluated. A single-blind, prospective study that included 16 patients with primary hyperparathyroidism was then conducted… CONTINUE READING
