Seejore, Khyatisha, Stephenson, John, Tun, Ei Mon Zin, Martin-Hirsch, Dominic, Al-Zwae, Khaled and Moisey, Robert S. (2016) Preoperative localisation for parathyroid surgery in primary hyperparathyroidism: a study to evaluate the clinical utility of different imaging modalities. Endocrine Abstracts, 44. p. 55. ISSN 1470-3947

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).
