Abstract

Parathyroid scintigraphy using (99m)Tc-MIBI is not currently considered a valuable diagnostic tool for the localization of involved glands in patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT). However, published data about its diagnostic accuracy are discordant and a meta-analysis about this topic is still lacking. The aim of our study is to meta-analyze the published data about the diagnostic performance of (99m)Tc-MIBI parathyroid scintigraphy in patients with SHPT.
