SPECT/CT in parathyroid imaging 07 Feb 2020

SPECT-CT in parathyroid

Dr Richard Graham

This talk explains how sestamibi imaging is an excellent way of locating parathyroid adenomas. The addition of SPECT and CT acquisitions improves sensitivity and specificity of localisation. Contrast enhanced CT also brings in an extra dimension which further aids localisation. This presentation covers the clinical context, radiographic technique, anatomy and interpretation of imaging and includes a number of clinical cases which illustrate specific learning points.

Educational aims:
• To describe the indications for parathyroid SPECT-CT
• To understand the imaging parameters for parathyroid SPECT-CT
• To be able to interpret parathyroid SPECT-CT

Further reading:
• BNMS Clinical Guideline for Parathyroid Scintigraphy
