Nuclear Medicine Parathyroid Scan

A parathyroid scan is a test to show the function of your parathyroid glands. It is used to investigate and localise any overactive parathyroid glands in your neck. A small amount of radioactivity is used to obtain a picture of your thyroid and parathyroid glands and this will help your doctor to understand your condition. Images are taken using a Gamma Camera.
