Özet

Background: Although the sensitivity of imaging studies is high in solitary parathyroid adenomas, negative results are inevitable. The aims of this prospective clinical study are to evaluate the impact of the presence of thyroid disease on the sensitivity and positive predictive value (PPV) of ultrasonography (US), sestamibi (MIBI), and parathyroid fine needle aspiration and parathormone assay (PTH-FNA).
