A comparative study of pre-operative imaging methods in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism: ultrasonography, 99mTc sestamibi
, single photon emission computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging.
Dual-phase 99mTc sestamibi
scintigraphy with neck and thorax SPECT/CT in primary hyperparathyroidism: a single-institution experience.
Parathyroid technetium scintiscan (99mTc Sestamibi
; Technetium-99 MIBI; methoxy-isobutyl-isonitrile) was requisite and revealed left lower parathyroid adenoma (Figure 6).

SPECT/CT for preoperative localization of parathyroid adenoma in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism," Clinical Radiology, vol.
Myocardial SPECT scintigraphy was performed with 99mTc sestamibi
using of a single day "stress-rest" protocol according to ASNC guidelines.
One injection of 99mTc sestamibi
at peak stress was given to patients who were subjected to exercise stress .
A 99mTc sestamibi
scan performed at another hospital was suggestive of a possible parathyroid adenoma.
