abstract

  • 4D-CT demonstrated a high diagnostic accuracy for single and multigland disease in our cohort. Importantly, 4D-CT accurately lateralized single-gland adenomas in >90% of cases, allowing the surgeon to employ a directed operative approach. 4D-CT also showed a very high specificity for the detection of multigland disease.
