Figure 2: Early (A) and late (B) planar views oftechnetium-99m methoxyisobutylisonitrile parathyroid scintigraphy. Transaxial (C-1), sagittal (C-2) and coronal (C-3) slices of technetium-99m methoxyisobutylisonitrile single-photon emission computed tomography study which was acquired in 128×128 matrix were generated using iterative reconstruction algorithm. Parathyroid pathology was depicted in the upper pole of left thyroid lobe (C-3, arrow). However, the focus was not detectable on images analyzed with filtered backprojection algorithm, transaxial (D-1), sagittal (D-2) and coronal (D-3) views (patient no: 18, [Table 1]).
