In a previous publication we presented our preliminary results with attempts at photoscanning parathyroid adenomas using 75Se-methionine.

Of the three patients in whom scans were read as positive, one patient had a small parathyroid adenoma in a position not corresponding to the scan picture. The two correctly positive scans were performed on patients whose parathyroid
