Nuclear Imaging is now a very well established technique used for the investigation of hyperparathyroidism. Sestamibi scintigraphy allows the detection of parathyroid adenomas and the position of any ectopic glands.
We routinely use high resolution hybrid SPECT-CT Imaging as part of our parathyroid scans. This enables more sensitive and accurate identification of any enlarged parathyroid glands.
We are also able to offer a complete diagnostic package for the elvaluation of hyperparathyroidism to include both nuclear imaging (SPECT-CT) and specialist neck ultrasound.
This provides the referring clinician with the best possible information in order to accurately guide further therapy.
