Parathyroid scan

There are variations in number and location of parathyroid glands due to which the visualization of any abnormality is difficult, taking all imaging modalities in account parathyroid scintigraphy is the most sensitive and specific technique for localization of hyperparathyroidism or overactive parathyroid glands.

How is it done?

The procedure is done in two parts:

Part 1 

Patient is positioned on his back and a small amount of radioactive tracer is injected into a vein of the arm, after 10 mins images are taken with the gamma camera. Then the patient is sent away for 2-3 hrs.

Part 2

When patient returns, additional images of the neck are taken, along with a second injection of radioactive tracer. This part takes approximately 30-60 minutes.

Applications of parathyroid scan:

  • Localization and preoperative assessment of parathyroid adenomas.
  • Hypercalcaemia 
  • Elevated parathyroid hormone level.

It is essential to take a note of any pregnancy if present or breastfeeding before the scan because of the potential risks involved due to radiation exposure.
