Abstract

Surgery is the only curative treatment for primary hyperparathyroidism. Several intraoperative adjuncts have been developed to facilitate parathyroidectomy to achieve a successful outcome. These include sestamibi-SPECT scanning, cervical ultrasound, 4D-CT scans, and intraoperative parathyroid hormone monitoring. One technology often overlooked is radioguided parathyroidectomy.
