To give an overview of the potential clinical utility of 18F-fluorocholine PET/CT (FCH PET/CT) in imaging of parathyroid adenoma. Available studies have provided preliminary results of 18F-FCH PET/CT in primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism. Results of various studies have shown that 18F-FCH is a promising upcoming tracer for the detection of parathyroid adenomas, especially when multiple, or having low size. FCH PET/CT has the potential to be a standard investigation in the detection of parathyroid lesions.
