Two cases are reported demonstrating that mediastinal scintigraphy for hyperparathyroidism should be routinely performed along with scintigraphy of the neck region. Because of the relative cost-benefit ratio, consideration should also be given to performing the procedure before the initial surgery. For the most accurate diagnosis and favorable outcome, our cases suggest that scintigraphic physiologic results should be correlated with anatomic results of conventional radiography.
