Visualization of parathyroid hyperplasia using 18F-fluorocholine PET/MR in a patient with secondary hyperparathyroidism


Huellner, Martin W; Aberle, Susanne; Sah, Bert-Ram; Veit-Haibach, Patrick; Bonani, Marco; Schmid, Christoph; Steinert, Hans (2016). Visualization of parathyroid hyperplasia using 18F-fluorocholine PET/MR in a patient with secondary hyperparathyroidism. Clinical Nuclear Medicine, 41(3):e159-e161.

Abstract

Several imaging modalities exist for the detection of parathyroid adenomas in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. Unlike solitary parathyroid adenoma, parathyroid hyperplasia in patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism hitherto is difficult to assess with any imaging modality. Our case of a young patient with chronic kidney failure illustrates that F-fluorocholine PET/MR might be an imaging tool suitable for the diagnosis and presurgical assessment of parathyroid hyperplasia.
