Table 3 Histopathological volume in hyper-functioning parathyroid glands from patients who tested positive/negative in PET/CT and SPECT/CT

From: The role of 18F-FCH PET/CT in patients with uremic hyperparathyroidism compared with 99mTc-sestaMIBI SPECT/CT and ultrasonography

 Size (mm3), mean ± SDP value
PET/CT-positive1.36 ± 0.55 (n = 53) 
PET/CT-negative0.83 ± 0.26 (n = 10)0.019***
PET/CT-positive and SPECT/CT-positive1.52 ± 0.56 (n = 35) 
PET/CT-positive and SPECT/CT-negative1.05 ± 0.36 (n = 18)0.097
  1. ***Volumes of the hyper-functioning parathyroid glands positive in 18F-FCH PET/CT were significantly different from those negative in 18F -FCH PET/CT
