Figure 3: A focus of increased activity was observed on early (A) and late (B) planar views (A-B, arrows). Three-dimensional image of single photon emission computed tomography study with iterative reconstruction (C-arrow), clearly depicted parathyroid lesion. Transaxial (D-1), sagittal (D-2) and coronal (D-3) slices of technetium-99 mmethoxyisobutylisonitrile single photon emission computed tomography study, faintly demonstrated the radioactivity retention in the lower part of right thyroid lobe (D-3, arrow). Delineation of hyperplastic parathyroid tissue could not be possible either on three-dimensional (E) or on transaxial (F-1), sagittal (F-2) and coronal (F-3) views of single photon emission computed tomography study with filtered backprojection, (patient no: 27, [Table 1]).
