The authors conclude that radionuclid-based methods (Tc (99m)-MIBI preoperative scintigraphy and Tc (99m)-MIBI intraoperative gamma-probing) seem to be the most effective in both preoperative and intraoperative detection of hyperfunctioning parathyroids. It is also suggested that the effectiveness of the imaging is higher in primary than in secondary hyperparathyroidism. It is underlined that the effectiveness of the operative treatment is strongly determined by the experience of the operating endocrine surgeon.
