Surgeon and Staff Radiation Exposure During Radioguided Parathyroidectomy at a High-Volume Institution

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Introduction: Radioguided parathyroidectomy (RGP) uses technetium-99┬ám sestamibi causing gamma ray emission during RGP to aid dissection and confirm parathyroid excision. Source (the patient) proximity and exposure duration determine degree of exposure. The purpose of this study was to quantify surgeon and staff radiation exposure during RGP.
