Forearm DXA Increases the Rate of Patients With Asymptomatic Primary Hyperparathyroidism Meeting Surgical Criteria

J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2016 Jul;101(7):2728-32. doi: 10.1210/jc.2016-1513. Epub 2016 Apr 12.

CONCLUSIONS: DXA at 3 sites revealed OP at the forearm, but not at the other sites, in 11.2% of aPHPT patients. Half of these cases met surgical criteria based on this one factor alone. These patients did not show any clinical (except age) or biochemical differences from the other patients. The implementation of forearm DXA increases the rate of patients with aPHPT meeting surgical criteria.
