PRUZZO C, ROSSANA et al. Localization of functioning parathyroid adenomas by SPECT/CT: Report of two cases. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2010, vol.62, n.3, pp.262-267. ISSN 0718-4026. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262010000300010.
Single photon emission computed tomography and computed tomography (SPECT/CT), integrates a gamma camera and a CT scan and is effective for the location of parathyroid adenomas. We report a 55 years old male and a 80 years old female with primary hyperparathyroidism. In both cases the 99mTc-Sestamibi parathyroid scintigraphy detected a functioning nodule whose presence was confirmed with SPECT/CT.
