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, in comparison with the techniques in use.
Participants: 100 subjects male and female that come to the institute of nuclear medicine for routine screening examinations.
The CZT screening takes 10 minutes and does not require any extra intervention to the routine screening.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective

Identification and localization of pathological parathyroid gland before parathyroidectomy is traditionally done by a combination of two methods: ultrasound and sestamibi scan. The investi...
This prospective study aims to 1. compare the detection rates among sonography, MIBI scan and 18F-FCH PET for localization of the parathyroid lesions including adenoma, hyperplasia or car...
This clinical trial studies the omission of intact parathyroid hormone testing during surgery in treating patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. Omission of intact parathyroid hormone ...
The aim of this study is to measure of the parathyroid cell viability and the the amount of calcium sensing receptor of the parathyroid cells which were placed into a new transportation so...
To develop a tissue bank library for patients with parathyroid disease who have undergone surgery and/or biopsy, and/or who may undergo surgical intervention at M. D. Anderson Cancer Cente...
Parathyroid hormone PTH) levels are the main parameters to differentiate primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) from non-PTH-dependent hypercalcemia. We report a case of hypercalcemia with normal PTH leve...
The main cause of primary hyperparathyroidism is a single parathyroid adenoma. Parathyroid lipoadenomas contain abundance of fat cells. Because of these histological features, they can mimic normal pa...
Pathologists are usually readily able to diagnose parathyroid tissues and diseases, particularly when they have knowledge of the clinical information, laboratory findings, and radiographic imaging stu...
Tc sestamibi parathyroid scan was performed in a 35-year-old man with chronic renal failure to evaluate the cause of increased serum parathyroid hormone. Both early and delayed images showed intense a...
Primary hyperparathyroidism is an endocrine disorder characterized by autonomous production of parathyroid hormone. Patients with the symptomatic disease should be referred for parathyroidectomy. Howe...
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.
A condition of abnormally elevated output of PARATHYROID HORMONE due to parathyroid HYPERPLASIA or PARATHYROID NEOPLASMS. It is characterized by the combination of HYPERCALCEMIA, phosphaturia, elevated renal 1,25-DIHYDROXYVITAMIN D3 synthesis, and increased BONE RESORPTION.
Small organic molecules that act as allosteric activators of the calcium sensing receptor (CaSR) in the PARATHYROID GLANDS and other tissues. They lower the threshold for CaSR activation by extracellular calcium ions and diminish PARATHYROID HORMONE (PTH) release from parathyroid cells.
A naphthalene derivative and CALCIMIMETIC AGENT that increases the sensitivity of PARATHYROID GLAND calcium-sensing receptors to serum calcium. This action reduces parathyroid hormone secretion and decreases serum calcium in the treatment of PARATHYROID DISEASES.
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...
