This book provides a visual demonstration of normal and ectopic  locations of parathyroid adenomas using different modalities in patients  with PHPT and to describe parathyroid gland–related pathology. It  includes several modern imaging modalities for localization of  parathyroid glands and parathyroid adenomas, such as Sestamibi scan,  SPECT/CT Sestamibi scan, neck ultrasound, MRI, thin-cut CT, and 4D CT  scans. Written by experts in the field, chapters include pathology  images corresponding to radiology imaging for some presented cases  (gross and high-power view). Authors have also collected radiological  images of difficult-to-localize parathyroid adenomas in ectopic  (abnormal) locations. The atlas is organized by location of the adenomas  in upper and lower eutopic locations followed by ectopic locations.  Each case demonstrates dual or triple modalities such as US, Sestamibi  scan, or SPECT/CT Sestamibi scan, thin-cut CT scan, or 4D CT performed  on the same patient. A chapter on parathyroid pathology is also included  to help the reader understand challenges in pathological  interpretation.

Atlas of Parathyroid Imaging and Pathology  serves as a valuable reference for radiologists, endocrine surgeons,  head and neck surgeons, ENT surgeons, surgical oncologists,  endocrinologists, pathologists, nephrologists, students, and all  physicians and allayed health practitioners involved in the treatment of  patients with primary, secondary, and tertiary hyperparathyroidism.
