Abstract

Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is caused by a solitary benign adenoma in 80‐85% of cases, but may also be due to multi‐gland or ectopic disease, hyperplasia, and rarely parathyroid carcinoma. Preoperative localisation studies are important to identify patients suitable for minimally invasive parathyroid surgery.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of ultrasound (US), parathyroid scintigraphy (MIBI) and computed tomography (CT) utilised in the preoperative setting in a district general hospital, with limited access to single photon‐emission computed tomography (SPECT).
