Objectives: To evaluate the diagnostic performance of 3TMRI in comparison with ultrasound (US) and 99mTc-sestamibi scan for presurgical localisation of parathyroid adenomas (PTAs) in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Methods: Fifty-seven patients affected by PHPT were prospectively enrolled and underwent US, 99mTc-sestamibi and 3TMRI. T2-weighted and post-contrast T1-weighted Iterative decomposition of water and fat with Echo Asymmetry and Least squares estimation (IDEAL) sequences were acquired. Diagnostic performance of US, 99mTc-sestamibi and MRI in localising PTAs to correct quadrant were compared according to surgical and pathological findings. Results: According to surgical findings, US correctly localised 41/46 PTAs (sensitivity of 89.1%; specificity 97.5%; PPV 93.1% and NPV 95.6%); 99mTc-sestamibi correctly localised 38/46 PTAs (sensitivity 83.6%, specificity 98.3%, PPV 95% and NPV 93.7%). US and 99mTc-sestamibi combined had a sensitivity of 93.4% (43/46 PTAs), specificity of 98.3%, PPV 95% and NPV 98.3%. MRI correctly localised 45/46 PTAs (sensitivity 97.8%; specificity 97.5%; PPV 93.7% and NPV 99.2%). MRI was able to detect six adenomas missed by 99mTc-sestamibi and two adenomas missed by US. MRI and US were able to detect all enlarged parathyroid glands in patients with multiglandular disease. MRI identified six of seven ectopic adenomas. Conclusions: Our study demonstrated high diagnostic performance of 3T MRI in the preoperative PTAs quadrant localisation, as well as in patients with multiglandular disease and ectopic PTAs. MRI may be preferred to adequately select patient candidates for minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP). Key Points: • PTA(s) quadrant localisation by 3TMRI was more accurate than US+99mTc-sestamibi.• MRI identified all enlarged glands in multiglandular disease similarly to US.• MRI identified 6/7 ectopic PTAs similarly to 99mTc-sestamibi.• Presurgical PTA(s) localisation by 3TMRI select the optimal candidates for MIP.

Abstract

Objectives: To evaluate the diagnostic performance of 3TMRI in comparison with ultrasound (US) and 99mTc-sestamibi scan for presurgical localisation of parathyroid adenomas (PTAs) in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Methods: Fifty-seven patients affected by PHPT were prospectively enrolled and underwent US, 99mTc-sestamibi and 3TMRI. T2-weighted and post-contrast T1-weighted Iterative decomposition of water and fat with Echo Asymmetry and Least squares estimation (IDEAL) sequences were acquired. Diagnostic performance of US, 99mTc-sestamibi and MRI in localising PTAs to correct quadrant were compared according to surgical and pathological findings. Results: According to surgical findings, US correctly localised 41/46 PTAs (sensitivity of 89.1%; specificity 97.5%; PPV 93.1% and NPV 95.6%); 99mTc-sestamibi correctly localised 38/46 PTAs (sensitivity 83.6%, specificity 98.3%, PPV 95% and NPV 93.7%). US and 99mTc-sestamibi combined had a sensitivity of 93.4% (43/46 PTAs), specificity of 98.3%, PPV 95% and NPV 98.3%. MRI correctly localised 45/46 PTAs (sensitivity 97.8%; specificity 97.5%; PPV 93.7% and NPV 99.2%). MRI was able to detect six adenomas missed by 99mTc-sestamibi and two adenomas missed by US.
