3 mg/dL had a positive scan as compared with 60% of those with lesser values. Similarly, a serum PTH level greater than 160 pg/mL correlated with positive scans in 93% as opposed to 57% in those with lower levels. Lower Ca and PTH levels thus seem to correlate with reduced sensitivity of Sestamibi. These findings were supported by a paper published by Hung et al. [34] who measured intact parathyroid hormone levels in hyperparathyroidism and correlated the data with Sestamibi imaging: visualization of hyperfunctioning parathyroid glands on 99mTc-parathyroid scintigraphy was more likely with the higher serum i-PTH level in a dose-dependent manner.

Published a survey on new trends in parathyroid scintigraphy [8]: the authors concluded that parathyroid scintigraphy can be recommended not only in persistent or recurrent hyperparathyroidism, but also in hyperparathyroid patients prior to first surgery. Especially since minimally invasive procedures requiring 4 Parathyroid Imaging 43 unilateral exploration of the neck have become popular, a new era of parathyroid scintigraphy has been opened: the preoperative proof of an adenoma can guide the surgeon to reduce operation time and invasiveness of the procedure.
