Tc-99m sestamibi scanning in the preoperative localization of mediastinal parathyroid adenomas.

Abstract

We report on two patients with mediastinal parathyroid adenomas who underwent preoperative Tc-99m sestamibi scintigraphy. Excellent physical characteristics of technetium and slow washout of Tc-99m sestamibi made possible clear delineation of mediastinal parathyroid adenomas by Tc-99m sestamibi imaging.
