Figure 1: 99mTechnetium Sesta methoxy isobutyl isonitrile (MIBI) parathyroid scintigraphy was performed with 580 MBq of MIBI given IV. 15 min and 2 h delayed images of anterior neck and mediastinum were acquired using a dual head variable angle gamma camera. Initial image shows homogenous normal tracer uptake in both lobes of thyroid gland. Delayed image shows focal tracer retention in left inferior parathyroid gland with complete washout from thyroid bed. Findings confirm left inferior parathyroid adenoma (marked by arrow)
