sestamibi

(sĕs′tə-mē′bē)
n.
An injectable drug containing an isotope of the radioactive element technetium, used in nuclear medicine imaging primarily to visualize the heart muscle, parathyroid glands, and breast tissue.

Sestamibi scan was done using a double isotope technique with technetium sestamibi (approximately 22.0 mCi [81 MBq]) with computer subtraction of iodine I 123 thyroid scan (1.0 mCi [37 MBq]) including all three views and single-photon emission computed tomography images.
Negative imaging studies for primary hyperparathyroidism are unavoidable: correlation of sestamibi and high-resolution ultrasound scanning with histological analysis in 150 patients.
Therefore, there is a need for further investigations such as neck ultrasound, sestamibi scan, CT imaging, 4D CT, and MRI [15, 16].
A scintigraphy with Tc99m sestamibi (MIBI) was performed in which a pathological hypercaptation was observed at the level of the left inferior thyroid.
Sestamibi scan ((99m)Tc) displayed a dominant right-sided neck lesion with minimal uptake of technetium.

A scintigraphy was performed with sestamibi that showed myocardial ischemia of small-to-moderate extension in the anteroseptal and inferoapical regions of the left ventricle (LV).
Parathyroid technetium scintiscan (99mTc Sestamibi; Technetium-99 MIBI; methoxy-isobutyl-isonitrile) was requisite and revealed left lower parathyroid adenoma (Figure 6).

Imaging studies can easily mistake ITPAs for thyroid nodules as they both show increased uptake on technetium [sup.99m]Tc sestamibi scans and are hypoechoic on ultrasound.
