On the basis of recent advances in our understanding of the pathogenesis of chronic renal failure, imaging of parathyroid hyperplasia in chronic dialysis patients has become a highly useful tool not only for identification, but also for evaluation of the nature of abnormal glands and for various intervention strategies. Rational imaging approaches, different from those used for primary hyperparathyroidism, should be established for secondary hyperparathyroidism.
