Abstract

Parathyroid localization tests are helpful for all patients with primary hyperparathyroidism before parathyroid exploration, and they are essential for patients who have had previous parathyroid or thyroid operations. The selection of specific localization tests depends on whether the patient is undergoing an initial or a reoperative procedure, as well as on the availability of the specialized equipment and expertise of the physicians and technicians performing and interpreting these studies.
