Parathyroid gland localization and lateralization are important before surgery, particularly for minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) and recurrent hyperparathyroidism. We hypothesized that readings of 99mTc sestamibi scans with single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) by a surgeon and nuclear medicine physician together (NMP+S) compared to a nuclear medicine physician alone (NMP alone) might affect scan interpretation accuracy.
