Özet

OBJECTIVE: In this Study we hypothesized that if timing of gamma probe-guided parathyroidectomy were individualized according to in optimal-time-to-surgery technique, in vivo characterization of parathyroid lesions would be possible. We compared our findings with an ex vivo Counting method ("20% rule") and frozen section results.
