Abstract

Although we are familiar with artifactual, focal pulmonary 18F-FDG accumulations without an apparent underlying pathologic finding, similar artifact for 99mTc-MIBI has not been described yet. Herein, we reported incidental detection of 99mTc-MIBI emboli in the lungs on parathyroid SPECT/CT.
