18F-NaF-PET/CT in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism and brown tumors


Graf, Carmen. 18F-NaF-PET/CT in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism and brown tumors. 2019, University of Zurich, Faculty of Medicine.

Abstract

Brown tumors (BT) are non-neoplastic bone lesions infrequently occurring in patients with long-standing severe hyperparathyroidism (HPT). BT may be identified and characterized using 18-F-sodium fluoride-positron-emission-tomography/computed tomography (18F-NaF-PET/CT). We present a retrospective series of eight primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) patients with BT imaged with 18F-NaF-PET/CT.
