At present, the gold standard for diagnosing PAs includes ultrasonography of the neck and sestamibi scans of the parathyroid. The objective of this study was to evaluate scans performed in 4D-DECT (4D-dual-energy mode) at three different time points, in order to analyze spectral information from PAs, lymph nodes (LNs), and thyroid gland (Thy).

The purpose of this study was to determine the expression profile of several biomarkers in sestamibi-positive (n = 23) and sestamibi-negative (n = 6) parathyroid adenomas.
The purpose of this guideline is to assist specialists in Nuclear Medicine and Radionuclide Radiology in recommending, performing, interpreting and reporting the results of Parathyroid Scintigraphy. T...
Added value of 18F-fluorocholine positron emission tomography-computed tomography in presurgical localization of hyperfunctioning parathyroid glands after dual tracer subtraction scintigraphy failure: A retrospective study of 47 patients.
Hyperparathyroidism is a common endocrine disorder. The precise localization of causal parathyroid gland is crucial to guide surgical treatment. Several studies report the added value of 18F-fluorocho...
Use of pinhole dual-phase Tc-99m sestamibi vs combined Tc-99m sestamibi and Tc-99m pertechnetate scintigraphy in patients with hyperparathyroidism where single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography is unavailable.
To compare the sensitivity and positive predictive value (PPV) of pinhole dual-phase Tc-99m sestamibi vs combined Tc-99m sestamibi and Tc-99m pertechnetate scintigraphy in patients with hyperparathyro...
Parathyroid carcinoma represents a rare cause of primary hyperparathyroidism. Distinguishing carcinoma from the benign tumors underlying primary hyperparathyroidism remains challenging. The diagnostic...
Trial Comparing 2 Diagnostic Strategies for Preoperative Localization of Parathyroid Adenoma in Primary Hyperparathyroidism:TEMP / CT With Tc99m-sestaMIBI or PET / CT With F18-choline in First Intention
The investigators hypothesize that positron emission tomography with fluorocholline (F18-choline PET) will reduce the proportion of unnecessary invasive surgery decisions and that the high...
The purpose of this study is to design a method to better localize parathyroid adenomas. This study will include approximately 6 patients who have not had surgery and another 25 patients w...
Identification and localization of pathological parathyroid gland before parathyroidectomy is traditionally done by a combination of two methods: ultrasound and sestamibi scan. The investi...
The investigators are studying the ability of F18 labeled fluorocholine PET to localize parathyroid adenomas in patients with hyperparathyroidism prior to surgery.
The purpose of the study is to check if the new CZT system has an advantage in detection of small osseous processes, thyroid adenomas, parathyroid adenomas and detection of sentinel node, ...
A dual specificity phosphatase subtype that plays a role in intracellular signal transduction by inactivating MITOGEN-ACTIVATED PROTEIN KINASES. It has specificity for EXTRACELLULAR SIGNAL-REGULATED MAP KINASES and is primarily localized to the CYTOSOL.
A dual specificity phosphatase subtype that plays a role in intracellular signal transduction by inactivating MITOGEN-ACTIVATED PROTEIN KINASES. It has specificity for EXTRACELLULAR SIGNAL-REGULATED MAP KINASES and is primarily localized to the CELL NUCLEUS.
A method of producing a high-quality scan by digitizing and subtracting the images produced by high- and low-energy x-rays.
Pathological processes of the PARATHYROID GLANDS. They usually manifest as hypersecretion or hyposecretion of PARATHYROID HORMONE that regulates the balance of CALCIUM; PHOSPHORUS; and MAGNESIUM in the body.
A parathyroid hormone receptor subtype that recognizes both PARATHYROID HORMONE and PARATHYROID HORMONE-RELATED PROTEIN. It is a G-protein-coupled receptor that is expressed at high levels in BONE and in KIDNEY.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above thecollarbone and is an endocrine gland that make hormones. These Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in the body, including how fast the body burns calories and how fast th...
