Scatter plot of SUVs for parathyroid adenoma and thyroid in n = 9 patients. Scatter plots with median values of a SUVpeak of the adenoma. b SUVmean of the thyroid. SUV standardized uptake value, Uptake time of tracer time (in min) between injection of 11C-choline and start of PET/CT acquisition, *significant difference (p < 0.01). Only 7 and 5 patients were scanned until 50-min and 60-min postinjection, respectively
