Abstract

Aim: The objective of this study was to compare the dual phase MIBI scinitgraphy with MIBI and Tc-99m pertechnetate (MIBI + Tc-99m) study in defining the parathyroid adenomas, and to evaluate the effect of histologic and biochemical characteristics on the imaging of parathyroid adenomas with Tc-99m methoxyisobutylisonitrile (MIBI) scintigraphy.
