[F]FCh uptake of parathyroid adenomas is strongly correlated with preoperative PTH serum concentration. Therefore, the preoperative PTH level might potentially be able to predict success of [F]FCh-PET imaging in hyperparathyroidism, with higher lesion-to-background ratios being expected in patients with high PTH. PET/MR is accurate in estimating the volume of parathyroid adenomas.
