Objective: Our aim was to assess the diagnostic performance of F-18 fluorocholine (FCH) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in detecting hyperfunctioning parathyroid tissue (HPT) in patients with elevated parathyroid hormone levels with negative or inconclusive conventional imaging results and to compare the findings with those obtained using technetium-99m sestamibi (MIBI) scintigraphy and neck ultrasonography (US).
