|Abstract||Double-phase parathyroid gland scintigraphy, using technetium Tc 99m sestamibi, correctly identified the existence and location of a parathyroid adenoma in a dog with primary hyperparathyroidism. The parathyroid adenoma was removed surgically 2 days after scintigraphy. An area of focal radionuclide uptake persisted in the region corresponding to the left external parathyroid gland in the delayed-phase image. Delayed-phase images from 3 healthy dogs and a dog with hypercalcemia of malignancy caused by lymphoma did not reveal an area of persistent radiotracer uptake. Double-phase parathyroid gland scintigraphy, using 99mTc-sestamibi, is a simple, rapid, noninvasive test, which can be used for detection and localization of parathyroid adenomas in hypercalcemic dogs. It also can help to differentiate these dogs from dogs with hypercalcemia of malignancy.|
